This high-rise building is the oldest skyscraper in Zagreb. It is a residential and commercial building, composed of two-storey base and eight-storey tower. It was designed by architect Drago Ibler and it was built between 1956 and 1958.
The building was initially planned for the Autocentar Company and to its employees. Knowing this, it is easy to assume how important car industry might have been for Zagreb economy in that time.
Wooden skyscraper got the nickname for its numerous wooden details and elements.
I adore this building. Each time I am at the Ibler’s Square I cannot help myself to look up and admire the elegant view. I always imagine prosperous and modern Zagreb of mid XX century.
