The beginnings of Lauba date back to 1910 when it was designed by the construction company Emil Eisner and Adolf Ehrlich. At that time, she served as a horse riding arena within the military complex of the Austro-Hungarian army, and later became the textile factory of the Zagreb Textile Combine, which operated until 2008.

These days Lauba is the only well-preserved building from the military complex. Since it is a protected cultural monument, it has been adapted in such a way that valuable historical features have been preserved. The space is a reflection of the contrast of its own purposes: the compact cube is intended for business activities that take place within Lauba, while flexible free space is used for various cultural activities (exhibitions, performances, screenings, etc.).

The story of the building as it is today began after an architectural open call held in March 2007, in which a project was selected to be signed by an architectural trio led by Alenka Gačić-Pojatina, in collaboration with Branka Petković and Ana Krstulović. Morana Vlahović later took over the interior design.
