Plečnik House

Now a small yet highly intriguing museum, the Plečnik House is the former abode of Jože Plečnik (1872–1957), one of the most important and certainly the most well known Slovene architect. As of 1974 devoted to this European architectural great, the museum houses the collection of Plečnik's personal artefacts as well as (since 2015) a study centre and an exhibition on the architect's life and work. However, the house itself is a testament in its own right, having been used as some sort of a prototype ground by its illustrious owner.

A thoroughly renovated complex of the two houses and an adjacent garden with a lapidarium, together with the entire inventory of furniture and other objects used by Plečnik, is since 2010 managed by the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana. Plečnik House was among the recipients of the European Union's Cultural Heritage Award / Europa Nostra for 2018. It won the award in the category of Education, training and raising awareness.

The collection is located at the Plečnik House in Trnovo, where Jože Plečnik lived from 1921 until his death in 1957. Plečnik's original work and furniture, his library, his drawing tools, and his personal belongings are preserved here, together with a large archive of sketches, plans, photographs, and models made of wood, clay, and plaster, as well as Plečnik's correspondence and his student work. The main part of the collection is on display in the cylindrical annex of the house, constructed between 1923 and 1925 by the architect himself.

From 1972 until 2010 the Plečnik Collection represented an important department of the Museum of Architecture and Design. Now it is managed by the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana). The renovations of the Plečnik House and its surroundings took two years to complete, the Plečnik Collection together with a permanent exhibition and a study centre has been on view since September 2015. In 2018 the Plečnik House got the Europa Nostra Award, Europe's top honour in the field of cultural heritage.
