The internationally acclaimed architectural firm GAO Architects was founded in Ljubljana in 1999 by Petra Zakrajšek, who even today continues to serve as its director and leading architect.

Interior design means love – the love of beautiful things, beautifully lit spaces, fragrant homes, and halls filled with beautiful music. Interior design also means respect for the people who use and live in these spaces.

Our mission is to create a unique story about space, to breathe character into that space, and to find the red thread that transforms an apartment into a warm shelter, a business space into a company’s individual identity, or a ballroom into a second home. One of our defining features is our openness to different ways of life and perceptions of the function and aesthetics of spaces. Each project offers us unique challenges that – as we combine the client’s wishes with our professional knowledge and expertise – always paves the way for the creation of light, furniture, colours, textures, materials and the indispensable visual image of the spaces. The implementation of each project is based on sincerity, trust and a deepened relationship with the client.
