Enota : Skorba Village Center

Near Ptuj, the oldest municipality in Slovenia, the small village of Skorba seems to have served as an airstrip for a mysterious UFO. It is actually an open-air 300 square-meter church designed by the local Enota agency, both a place of worship and gathering for locals.

If Skorba was once a most “normal” town, gentrification and the growth of towns in the region have helped dilute its limits. Interlaced between two industrial zones, it becomes, according to the architects "A suburban suburb". How to revive this forgotten village while gathering its inhabitants? Thanks to a structure in his image: atypical.


The triangular single-storey construction, reminiscent of Japanese origami, includes a covered preaching space, facing two oblique sides that seem to rise towards the heavens, where the seats of the faithful are installed. An aerial treatment of the bleachers that echoes the spirituality of this space.

An organic realization in white concrete that contrasts with the local rural landscape.
