Contract signed with the client of the Kristal observation tower

We signed a contract with the municipality of Rogaška Slatina for all design phases of a 106 meter high observation tower Kristal. Upon completion of the construction, the tower with a two-storey viewing platform and an outdoor rooftop observatory will become the tallest building in Slovenia.

The observation tower is designed as a tall sightseeing structure with a reinforced concrete footing and a two-storey symmetrically designed observation deck, shaped as an abstract crystal form. The viewing platform will also contain several tourist and catering facilities, and will be accessible by two panoramic elevators. The tower will offer views of Rogaška Slatina and its surroundings and will further diversify the offer of the city, known for its mineral water, health resort and glassworks.

Nearby, Ponting also designed the overpass Sonce, which will connect the town’s old spa area with the Trieste hill. A 177.5-meter long and 3.5-meter wide overpass will serve as a new, safe bike and walking trail for the local community. The transparent steel structure will have one larger, 43-meter-long span across the road and railway. The construction of the overpass is expected to begin this year.
