project Hutter's block, Maribor, Slovenia
written by Stojan Skalicky


Hutter’s block is of special significance to expert circles, as much as to the inhabitants of Maribor. The investor in the large housing block was Josip Hutter, a successful and well-known textile industrialist from Maribor, who had an exceptional sensibility for social issues, and who considered the quality of a person’s residence as particularly important. The authors of this outstanding block were architect Saša Dev, who supervised the project to its very execution, and architect Jaroslav Černigoj.
