Fade-to-black: Enota turns a Dominican monastery into a cultural centre in Slovenia.

ENOTA arhitektiThe architecture studio Enota has just finished renovating this cultural centre in Ptuj, a city situated in North-East Slovenia. The most unusual aspect is that it’s situated in an 800-year old Dominican monastery. The project won a competition in 2003 and stands out for harmoniously combining the architectural and artistic elements accumulated over the building’s long history, complimented with a contemporary feel by Enota.

ENOTA arhitektiIn the main nave white dominates in the old architecture whilst black has been chosen for the seatings and new stage. This division of colours and styles complement each other perfectly and helps to distinguish between the old and added. Enota has employed the same principle elsewhere in the building.

This sharp staircase reveals the intricacies of the elevation of the row of seats, as well as allows to see vestiges from across the ages (medieval, gothic, baroque) and those of the monastery’s old functions.

Hence, the building’s interior walls had been quite altered over the last decades in order to accommodate all these different uses, whose remains have been left exposed as well.
