Design(er) - Boutique Hostel Forum

The hostel’s design is actually a love story - a fusion of traditional and modern with a kiss blown to Zadar. Homage is paid to one of Zadar’s landmarks and hostel’s namesake, the Roman Forum, by including elements of Roman architecture and culture such as the ‘grandstand’ in the common area as well as the Roman numerals used to mark the rooms together with standard numbering. 

Architect(ure) - Boutique Hostel Forum

Hostel Forum combines modern and traditional architecture where public and private sphere ideally intertwine. The dimensions of the building are 75 m of length and only 5 m of width, so the adaptation was by no means a walk in the park. Check out this great piece of architecture!
