SADAR + VUGA Architects

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.

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.
