About Change this

Jurij Kobe is Slovenian architect based in Ljubljana. He is the founder of the architectural practice ATELIERarhitekti, an open group of architects sharing the same vision and comprehension of a space. Their work ranges from domestic to public buildings, cultural projects and open public spaces, and covers also scenography as well as exhibition set design.

Recent projects include the extension to the Slovene National Theatre Opera and Ballet Ljubljana, the new Butcher's Bridge in Ljubljana, and the awarded Maribor Puppet Theatre and Ljubljanica riverbanks projects.

Among running the ATELIERarhitekti studio, Jurij Kobe is also a professor at the Faculty of Architecture, University of Ljubljana. His early works include several renovations, among them also the Cekin Castle where the National Museum of Contemporary History is located, and many schools. The Secondary School of Nursing in Ljubljana was also a finalist for the Mies van der Rohe Prize (1998) for best European architecture.

The merger of ATELIERarhitekti was initiated by a long collaboration with Rok Žnidaršič and Jerneja Fischer Knap. Later on the two of them established the studio Medprostor arhitekti, while ATELIERarhitekti transformed to an open collective of architects, who are simultaneously working on the same project.

In 2012 Jurij Kobe and Rok Žnidaršič received the Plečnik Award for the reconstructed former Minorite convent, now home to the Maribor Puppet Theatre.
