Savsko Naselje (settlement) was the first post-war housing development to be established in Socialist Slovenia. The neighbourhood’s original buildings were commune-style single-storey houses with brick woodsheds attached. The boundary was expanded by adding several long five-storey apartment blocks that were positioned on a northeast-southwest axis in order to take advantage of daylight. Five 14-storey residential towers, the first of their kind in Ljubljana, were then constructed in the early 1960s.
