The office has realized a wide portfolio of projects in Slovenia and abroad, among them all forms of housing, schools, university buildings, and a congress centre. In recent years, bevk perović have increased the intensity of their international activity, with projects and competition entries in Austria, Belgium, Germany and Albania, among others.
bevk perović take great care in developing typologies further. Each project is an experiment, and the richness of formal variation as well as of material diversity in their work is stunning.
We recommend this older, but very interesting interview with bevk perović.
