Ofis Arhitekti is a Ljubljana based yet internationally acclaimed architectural office. With its numerous awards and projects that are spread across several continents, this moderately sized bureau is at the forefront of Slovene architectural practice. Adept in very diverse contexts, Ofis has been designing projects that scale from 30 to 50,000 square metres – their work ranges from futuristic football stadiums and huge housing projects to modest mountain huts. It encompasses architecture, urbanism, art and stage design.

Formed in 1998, the bureau was founded and is still led by Rok Oman and Špela Videčnik. Now employing about two dozens architects, the company has an additional office in Paris.

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.
