Islamic Religious and Cultural Centre

The ‘specificity’ of the location for the Islamic Religious and Cultural Centre is its lack of ‘specificity’ – an area near the city centre, abandoned and forgotten. Like its historical predecessors, an example being Sarajevo’s 19th-century mosques, it becomes a starting point for the development for this part of Ljubljana. The programme consists of a religious school, a cultural and office programme, apartments, a restaurant and the mosque, the first one built in Slovenia. The simple volumes are positioned as separate entities, surrounding the central square with a mosque. They are oriented towards the ‘outside’ world with their programmes, simultaneously surrounding the mosque and allowing views towards it through the gaps between them.
