Exhibition by architectural office SKROZ



We are pleased to invite you to the lecture and opening of the exhibition of the architectural office SKROZ, which will be held on 10 September at Oris House of Architecture (Kralja Držislava 3), starting at 7 p.m. The exhibition "SKROZ" will be on view from 10 September until 28 September, 2019.
From idea to realization, the design process rarely remains clean, continuous and straightforward. Often faced with various constraints in acting, balancing and juggling on the edge of architecture - with  hacking space, improvising, humor, designing on the go and stretching the frame, we strive to make the desired leap in architecture, especially in situations where it seemingly seems impossible.
SKROZ has no small and large projects, no small and large investors; the only thing that is common to all projects is the equal commitment of the architects who strive to unlock the hidden potential of the given task.
By showing selected projects, different in typology and scale, the process of action by architecture studio SKROZ are revealed.
Architecture studio SKROZ covers the primary elements of architecture and urbanism, as well as products of graphic design. In addition to regular exhibitions at architecture salons and a number of awards at architectural competitions, SKROZ are the winners of the Croatian Architects' Association annual Bernardo Bernardi Award, the Ministry of Culture's Vladimir Nazor Award, the international design award ICOGRADA Excellence Award, (along with Damir Gamulin, Igor Presečan and Zvonimir Krlaj) for the project of the City Library in Labin in 2013 / 2014 and were nominated for several awards for the same project (Piranesi, Mies Van Der Rohe, Salon Grand Prix). In 2017, the Punta Nova Campsite project on Pag (strategic project of the Republic of Croatia) won the ARTUR Award (Architecture in Tourism) in the preliminary design category. At the 2018 Architecture Salon Novi Sad, they won award in the Architecture category for Kokošvaroš project, in the Interior category for the project Rooms of Secrets, and the top prize in the Architecture Experiment category for the Urban Frames project. The Kokošvaroš project won the award for the complete project / product at the Biennial Exhibition 2017 / 2018 HDD with Maša Vukmanović’s Creative Studio, while at the Sarajevo Architecture Days it received the FRESH + BOLD Award. In 2019, the office building in Rakov Potok was selected as the representative of Croatia in the category of public and commercial buildings for the International Construction Award CEMEX.
SKROZ was formed as a logical continuation through many years of successful cooperation initiated by its founders - Margita Grubiš, Marin Jelčić, Daniela Škarica and Ivana Žalac, and during the 10 years and ongoing work by many young and promising professionals who contributed to the creation of SKROZ architecture.
