Ptuj Performance Center
With its splendid and inspiring past, followed by an unfortunate fate after the dissolution of the fraternity, the renovation Dominican monastery represents a demanding task of great responsibility. For a successful renovation of a historical building, the key is to keep the building in service and strive for the new programme to showcase its historical value, as well as artistic merit.

Novo Mesto Central Market
Novo mesto central market lies in the very centre of the historical town core in the immediate vicinity of the main town square. Despite this, it feels somewhat removed today, being separated by its level and oriented towards the low-quality city space of Florjanov Square. Therefore, one of the basic guidelines for siting the new central market into the space must be to create the best possible entrance from main square.

This building is located in a small village near the town of Novo Mesto, which is the capital of Dolenjska region. The Center extends to an area of 2,350 sqm. This project offers a new answer to the question as to how a contemporary public infrastructure is placed into a typical Slovenian countryside. The building serves as a sports hall for the existing local primary school and also doubles as a community sports centre.

Slovenian Dental Studio Building

Slovenian Dental Studio – 17 Jul 2012
Stamboldžioski Dental Studio is located at the outskirts of the city, in a residential community featuring mostly single-family homes. It has been built as a replacement for the cramped surgery in the dentist’s private house, which was set up on the ground floor. It is therefore an annex, whose floor area – as it so often happens in such cases – exceeds that of the house it has been annexed to. Furthermore, its programme significantly differs from the predominant function of the vicinity.

Vrunčeva Residential Building – 23 Mar 2012
Residential complex Vrunčeva introduces a new typology of the city block unit. The modification of the block unit as laid out by the zoning legislation is the result of finding a direct answer to the spatial challenges of the site and ensuring high-quality habitation combined with excellent flexibility and energy efficiency for the building. The building is designed as a kind of hybrid of the classical block unit development and terraced structures characteristic of more open, suburban spaces.
