SADAR + VUGA Architects

updated 21 hours ago

Never shy of making bold architectural statements, SADAR + VUGA is among the most visible architecture bureaus in Slovenia. Founded in 1996 by Boštjan Vuga and Jurij Sadar, their office has made a significant mark not only in the landscape of the Slovene capital Ljubljana but also in the public discourse surrounding architecture. They've earned themselves substantial international limelight and their projects are standing (or getting there) in several states across Europe.

The bureau is usually simultaneously preoccupied by large scale projects – such as the renovation of the main city boulevard in Ljubljana and the Sports Park Stožice – as well with interior design and various smaller housing endeavors. Either way, there is always a sense of complexity in their charismatic visual language.
