There used to be a tavern called Fortuna there, a local bar that marked the lives of a lot of young people from Šalata. A separate garage used to house a couple of pinball machines, a Scramble, a Frogger… there used to be a jukebox, and the terrace filled with lush greenery used to be surrounded by a beautiful stone wall. Table cloths were, of course, made of gingham cloth. A lot of our pocket money was spent there…

There were two things that were obvious to us from the beginning: the birch tree must survive the construction, and the stone wall on the street corner needs to be preserved… and so the corner of the house is soft because of that…and spatial memory is preserved…
