To this urban environment of the very heart of the tow was in 1997 added an office and trade building designed by Nande Korpnik. Architecturally the building follows the design of the Velenje Coal-mine offices, whilst also trying to strike harmony with the architecture of the Paka Hotel designed in 1959 by architect Stanko Rohman and the offices of the Ljubljanska banka, the work of architect Miloš Bonča (1972).
The Gallery and the Library found their rightful place in the town's square in 1976. However, in 2005 the library was moved to a new premises, giving the Gallery additional space needed for different exhibitions. Additional exhibition rooms meant that the Gallery is able to hold major exhibitions and projects and has become a true centre of modern applicable art and major exhibitions.
