Albeit small, Slovenia is a captivating country. Bordered by Italy, Austria, Hungary and Croatia, it has one of the most diverse architectural cultures of central Europe. The region has been shaped by the Roman Empire, the Habsburg Monarchy and the Yugoslav era, each leaving an indelible mark on its architectural identity. Ljubljana, Slovenia’s capital city, is especially filled both with medieval charm as well as architectural elegance, awakened during the country’s Romantic period. Slovenia is also home to one of the richest and most diverse natural landscapes of Europe, stretching from the Alps to the Adriatic Sea.

Jože Plečnik, Slovenia’s most influential modernist architect, along with Ivan Vurvik, and his work regarding the iconic “Slovene National Style”, became the founders of the Ljubljana School of Architecture. Their unique architectural style amalgamated modernism, the Vienna Secession (a type of Art Nouveau) and past historical ideas and forms, which became the blueprint for the country’s contemporary architectural practice.

Slovenia’s architectural richness and unique natural landscape have greatly shaped the young generation of architects. They are passionately embracing environmentally sustainable designs both within dense urban fabrics as well as natural terrains. Modern structures, such as the Plečnik House and the Stožice Stadium, showcase a fusion of contemporary aesthetics and eco-conscious design principles. Being somewhat the “center” of historical – and architectural – controversy in Europe, Slovenia has developed an extraordinary architectural identity and design practice constantly advancing the country’s built environment and culture.

With so many architecture firms to choose from, it’s challenging for clients to identify the industry leaders that will be an ideal fit for their project needs. Fortunately, Architizer is able to provide guidance on the top design firms in Slovenia based on more than a decade of data and industry knowledge.

How are these architecture firms ranked?

The following ranking has been created according to key statistics that demonstrate each firm’s level of architectural excellence. The following metrics have been accumulated to establish each architecture firm’s ranking, in order of priority:

  • The number of A+Awards won (2013 to 2023)
  • The number of A+Awards finalists (2013 to 2023)
  • The number of projects selected as “Project of the Day” (2009 to 2023)
  • The number of projects selected as “Featured Project” (2009 to 2023)
  • The number of projects uploaded to Architizer (2009 to 2023)

Each of these metrics is explained in more detail at the foot of this article. This ranking list will be updated annually, taking into account new achievements of Slovenia architecture firms throughout the year.

Without further ado, here are the 30 best architecture firms in Slovenia:

In architecture, our main interest is in how users experience it, and therefore the purpose or reason for an intervention or use of a specific material or detail. Rather than being engaged with forms, we focus on feelings and emotions our buildings create. It is crucial to work on the project from the preliminary sketch to the smallest details, as this is the only way to create a whole experience rather than merely architecture as scenery.

presledek. is a design collective established by Vid Zabel and Barbara Zunkovic in 2015. Collective understands architecture as an unfolding systematic process that confronts and answers to series of different conditions. These conditions (historical, local, global, contemporary) are the grid and tools to utilize. The perception of singular individual as a user drives collective’s interest and it is also for us the main focal point in architecture. Engaging these individuals and forming new social interactions is one of the main concepts in work of the collective. We understand individuals as a means to work as a critical spatial praxis. The dialog within the collective and dialog between different other professionals, where we perceive future user as professional in his own set of rules and conditions of his way of life, is for us the tool in which our concepts are always tested and proven.

Elastik is an architectural studio organized as an international network of individuals who come forward to form project groups according to the specific requirements of a given project or of the client in question; hence, the name Elastik. In this context, Elastik works independently of various geographic and political borders, and as an adaptable meshwork. The studio was founded in 2004 by Igor Kebel and Mika Cimolini. With the largest proportion of project located in the Netherlands and in Slovenia, Elastik also maintains its international presence. A build-up of the international network of collaborators is embedded into the organisational scheme and the working method of Elastik. International projects can only be realized through the affiliated network of collaborators who share the same ambition, production and disciplinary motivation. These alliances do not include only architectural firms, but also marketing experts, engineering specialists, interface designers, visual gurus, and material advisors, which are joining the project think-thank at the earliest possible stage of the project.

Elastik’s goal is to practice architecture closer to the notion of an industrial product that depends on a particular cultural “conditions of existence” and to develop tailor made concepts that arise out of everyday life as well as take into account the users of the spaces themselves and their own wishes. We are convinced that architecture shall become more successful in addressing everyday desires and producing meaning for the people that use it. This meaning is produced through interactive relationship of products hard and soft values, hard being their material values, programs, functions and techniques and soft being the psychological values, movement in time, social clustering and management of programs.

Therefore, Elastik is orientated towards developing customized spaces for everyday use that are comprised of the material and non-material components of inclusiveness in which users and their wishes play an important role. We have developed a design method called critical geometry in which the postulates of economy, programmes with different daily routines of the various users and the material demands of the project, all bargain with each other on an equal basis. The desires of the users and the geometry are composed into a spatial composition. Even when dealing with immeasurable, intimate, and individual values, we maintain to think relationally and integratively. In an indivisible process of translation and adaptation, the intimate world of users and their habits are transformed into parameters and geometries, before becoming architecturally specific.

SVET VMES was founded in 2010 as a non-formal creative group of architects from Ljubljana, Slovenia with an urge to question, explore and expose the potential of left over, ‘in-between’ spaces within educational and public buildings. By shifting between observation and action, SVET VMES analyses the existing dilapidated interior and exterior ‘in-between’ areas, to locate the sore points and to remediate, heal and transform them into places of events, potential, comfort, interaction, negotiation, delight and seclusion, inventing a new kind of ‘loaded’ interstitial typology.

Our interventions of various scales allow us to instigate and explore new ‘in-between’ behaviors, encourage spatial sensitivity and emergence among people, challenge their daily patterns and disturb the existing social reality. SVET VMES has in the last years continuously modified and transformed into a venturous and research design practice, whose work was locally and internationally recognized, published and awarded.

The orange Project of the Day and yellow Featured Project badges are awarded by Architizer’s Editorial team, and are selected based on a number of factors. The following factors increase a project’s likelihood of being featured or awarded Project of the Day status:

  • Project completed within the last 3 years
  • A well written, concise project description of at least 3 paragraphs
  • Architectural design with a high level of both functional and aesthetic value
  • High quality, in focus photographs
  • At least 8 photographs of both the interior and exterior of the building
  • Inclusion of architectural drawings and renderings
  • Inclusion of construction photographs

There are 7 Projects of the Day each week and a further 31 Featured Projects. Each Project of the Day is published on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram Stories, while each Featured Project is published on Facebook. Each Project of the Day also features in Architizer’s Weekly Projects Newsletter and shared with 170,000 subscribers.
