Plečnik House

Plecnik House 2015 exterior.jpg

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.

Arrea Architecture

Founded by Maruša Zorec in 2005, Arrea Architecture is considered to be one of the most prominent architectural bureaus in Slovenia. Though not confined to renovations only, the bureau is however most famed precisely for its subtle takes on the built heritage. With a deft touch they transform such places into functional and contemporary buildings while simultaneously preserving the qualities and logic of the existing structures and their surroundings.

The Arrea Architecture cast of architects is still led by Zorec and (as of 2017) it includes Matjaž Bolčina, Katja Saje, Martina Tepina, Maša Živec, Uroš Rustja, Mark Koritnik, Aleksi Vičič and Tadej Bolta. The better part of their projects in recent years has been awarded prestigious national awards or honourable mentions.
