Bevk Perović arhitekti was founded by Matija Bevk and Vasa J. Perovic in 1997. The office is based in Ljubljana, Slovenia, currently employing 12-15 architects, working on diverse range of projects, in different European countries.
Their portfolio includes a variety of projects of various scales – large housing projects, both social and commercial, public and cultural buildings, university buildings, museums, office buildings, congress facilities as well as individual houses.
For their work, the office has been awarded numerous prizes - European Union Prize for Contemporary Architecture – Mies van der Rohe Emerging Architect Award in 2007 (for Faculty of Mathematics, University of Ljubljana), Kunstpreis Berlin in 2006, Piranesi Award in 2005, as well as 8 Plecnik prizes for best building of the year and Prešeren Prize, the highest national prize for culture, in 2005.
While most of the work of Bevk Perovic arhitekti is carried out in Slovenia, in the recent years they have started working internationally, on a series of projects – in Austria, Switzerland, Croatia and Czech republic.
Bevk Perovic arhitekti have recently won 2 large international competitions – the competition to build the Islamic Religious and Cultural centre in Ljubljana, as well as a competition for NUK2 - the New National University Library in Ljubljana, an extension of Plecnik's National Library.
The work of the office has been published extensively in different publications – 2012 saw the publication of a monographic issue of El Croquis titled 'Conditionalism', and, in September 2013, a monographic issue of A+U magazine has been published by Shinkenchiku-Sha in Tokyo.
They exhibit their work extensively, and recent solo exhibitions of their work have been organized in Kunstverein Bielefeld, Museum for Applied Arts, Belgrade and Fragner Gallery, Prague.
