Materinski dom je v več pogledih posebna hiša. Njegova vsebina v sozvočju z obliko tudi naključnemu opazovalcu pove lepo zgodbo. Na meji dveh mest, stavba namreč leži tik ob glavnem mestnem pokopališču, ki ga od drugega mesta loči park, zlahka razberemo, da je moč z oblikovanjem, ki sledi funkciji, vzbuditi in negovati občutek varnosti. Tega pa njegovi stanovalci najbolj potrebujejo. Oblikovno je funkcija in zasnova hiše jasna že z zasnovo fasade. Pritličje, javni del je s cezuro ločen od nadstropja, spalnega dela. Fasadni ovoj pa objema hišo z dveh strani, z dvemi materiali, betonom, ki z uporabo deščičenega opaža pridobi krhek nagovor in sledi drugemu objemu, stekleni fasadi. Oba skrbno varujeta notranjost. Raster oken pa usmerja in skriva ter odpira poglede. Ureja potrebno komunikacijo z okolico in govori o tem, da Materinski dom ni navadna hiša. Je ustanova, ki varuje in obenem podarja toplino doma.


Mothers home is above all a home – a special one. Architecture responds strongly to its program and tells a livid story.

It can be said it is located between two cities. Situated in the residential area, next to the park bordering the main Ljubljana cemetery its design inspires sense of security and purpose. And these are two essential needs of its occupants.

The concept and the program are clearly readable on the facade. The public ground floor is separated from other more private levels with a strong caesura. And the double facade embraces the house from two sides, with two materials. Strong but delicately formed concrete speaks about safety and fragility, while the double glass facade hides and reflects. The chosen materials offer a feeling of gentle but uncompromising support and security.

The rhythm of transparency hides, reveals and communicates with the environment. It tells the story of a home: safe and warm.
