Bevk & Perović, smallest details
Bevk & Perović are two architects that founded Bevk Perovic Arhitekti practice, in Ljubljana in 1997. They investigate the hybridization of Western architectural theories and models with the Slovenian political and cultural context.
They design a predominantly residential architecture with a language without excesses, but characterized by elements planned down to the smallest detail and close to the vernacular building traditions.
Widely known throughout Slovenia, his large-scale social housing projects and visionary private residence projects have also garnered international recognition by collecting prizes and winning several competitions and commissions abroad.
Bevk Perović’s works often have a somewhat reserved atmosphere, although paradoxically this does not preclude their projects from being quite explicit.
The use of low-cost materials makes it possible to allocate part of the budget to the creation of outdoor public spaces, an integral and vital part of the project.
The main difference is made by the analysis of the smallest element, which is always essential even on the whole project. This allows for a much more careful and decisive analysis, allowing architects to create useful projects for any type of situation and person.
Each decision on the shape represents a solution to an objective problem, subsequently translated into new and innovative ideas based on the single detail, as the two designers are looking for that: the detailed analysis.
A new complexes become “seeds” for the development of the new parts of the city, becoming an integral part of it.
The project reflects the desire to create something that is rooted in tradition, but at the same time modern.
