Founded by architect Jurij Kobe in 2009, ATELIERarhitekti is an open group of architects with a shared vision and understanding of space. The work of the group encompasses residential and public buildings, cultural projects and open public spaces, and also branches out into set and exhibition design.

Recent projects include the extension to the Slovene National Theatre Opera and Ballet Ljubljana, the new Butcher's Bridge in Ljubljana, the Maribor Puppet Theatre and the adjacent Minorite Church, Maribor, and the Ljubljanica riverbanks projects.


The European Prize for Urban Public Space, a biennial competition organised by seven European institutions, was awarded to ATELIERarhitekti in 2012 for their renovation work on the banks of the Ljubljanica River in Ljublana. This joint project also featured contributions from Boris Podrecca, BB arhitekti, atelje Vozlič, DANS Arhitekti, Trije arhitekti, Medprostor arhitekti, and Urbi.

In 2012, Jurij Kobe and Rok Žnidaršič received the Plečnik Award for their renovation of the former Minorite Convent, which now houses the Maribor Puppet Theatre.


Apart from his duties at ATELIERarhitekti, Jurij Kobe is also a professor at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana. His early work includes the renovation of the Cekin Mansion, which now houses the National Museum of Contemporary History, and work on a number of schools. The Secondary School of Nursing in Ljubljana was a finalist for the Mies van der Rohe Prize for best European architecture in 1998.

ATELIERarhitekti took shape following a long period of collaboration with Rok Žnidaršič and Jerneja Fischer Knap. The two went on to establish the Medprostor arhitekti studio, while ATELIERarhitekti transformed into an open collective of architects who work simultaneously on the same project.
