Ofis arhitekti produced a great example of the integration of a contemporary modern construction next to more traditional entities. A great proof that a contemporary house can distill the essence of a local traditional architecture while avoiding the simplistic imitation of the past.


The hut is situated in a small Alpine village, part of Triglav national park with very strict rules of construction and architecture design. The client bought the site together with existing construction permit for the generic project. Demand was not to change construction permit but change the elements of the house to suit his family, sustainable design factor and open the windows toward the views.

The competition for new Ljubljana administration centre of 60.000m2. Ofis Arhitekti's brief proposed several departments to move to the same site but occupy different buildings. The heart of the centre is the main hall where citizens could also arrange all the documents.
ofis_city_municipality_INNER_HALL
The site is just on the edge of the Ljubljana city centre, by the river and already occupied by some existing protected buildings. 
As such, the area represents a chance for unique architectural rearrangement with its identity and to become a sort of symbol and landmark area of contemporary Ljubljana architecture. The mixture of public and restricted relations inside the program calls for complex organisation – both inside and outside.

There is certain consistency about Ofis Arhitekti. We always get a pleasant surprise when we receive a new project from them. Although the building typology differs from one project to another, there is always a healthy dose of creativity and novelty that gets injected into each project.
ofis_farewell_chapel_tomaz_gregoric_04Which brings me to this latest addition; a farewell chapel is located in a village close to the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana. 
A place that calls for serenity, as friends and families bid their last farewells to their dear departed.

The featured housing block is situated at the edge of a housing development that projects the construction of 650 apartments. After construction, the design was acquired by the Slovenian Housing Fund and will be replicated in other developments.

With a rich interplay of small volumes of different material interlocking throughout the elevations, many people associated them to Tetris game. And so the building got its name.
