S+V has been invited to a competition to design a new business building for the largest Slovenian energy company and importer – Petrol Group.

How can an architectural design of a building stimulate the corporate culture of Petrol and add to the well-being and happiness of the people who work there?

We designed a new building of the modern corporation with Petrol’s slogan Energy for Life in mind while using three starting points; community, knowledge and body as a base strategy . The design of the building and the activities that happen in it encourage movement and balance of the work process and the physical needs of employees.

The new Petrol office building will enable a stimulating working and living environment, professional and social interactions as well as unexpected situations. It will definitely not be a boring building and its image in the city will represent a dynamic and ever-changing working environment. Working in such an environment would represent a new experience, adventure, and passion. It promotes inclusion and participation in a professional environment and a company itself.

Boštjan Vuga is one of one hundred architects featured in the project One Object. 100 Architects. And Inspiration

Latvian designer Anna Butele explores the notion of inspiration in a levitating installation: 100 works materialize from a collaborative experimental project. Drawings, graphics, photographs, and models by renowned architects from 28 countries form a chain—each contribution is a reaction inspired by the previous work.

AEDES Gallery in Berlin, Germany is hosting an exhibition of the project in parallel to the upcoming publication of the book. The opening ceremony of the exhibition will take place on Friday, August 16 at 6:30 pm.

Construction drone footage of Sports Hall shows the project is evolving at high speed

An obsession with perspective isn’t anything new to architecture, but increasingly, there’s a new point of view that’s changing our views of real estate, design and buildings. Drone videos are offering a clearer view of a relatively complex and crowded building site and can only help us, architects, organizers and planners.

Video shows the early stages of construction of the Sports Hall Extension. This is our second project out of three in the University Campus in Gent, Belgium.

More photos and videos coming in the future.

Introducing! Neighbourhood of twin houses Sinja Gorica – Our response to Slovenian dream home

Where is the twist when dealing with suburban living, generic location, generic brief and what people like?

We found an answer in designing the houses as »dreams« of a young, urban family inspired by well-known imagery and patterns of suburbia – hayracks, outbuildings, workshop canopies and self-made facades.  Playing with them, changing them and giving them a completely new meaning. Nothing is completely new or in excess, but the houses are still unique.
