RECAP 2022: Unveiling Architectural Marvels: Baumit Life Challenge in Valencia

The Baumit Life Challenge 2022 in Valencia was a celebration of architectural excellence and innovation. This prestigious event brought together outstanding buildings that pushed the boundaries of design and construction. From avant-garde structures to sustainable marvels, each project showcased the limitless possibilities in modern architecture. 

The historical renovation project Cukrarna won the main award in 2022 and brought the event to Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Cukrarna, a former sugar refinery, was built in 1828. The key idea was to carve out all internal structures of the building, preserving only the historic envelope, and convert it into a multi-functional space for contemporary art. Today represents a revolutionary new space in the cultural infrastructure of Ljubljana. The winning project is a prime example of how an old unused industrial building was given a new lease of life by means of well thought-out planning and renovation and put to a completely new use.
