The concept of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering assesses the location in Ljubljana between Hajdrihova street, Faculty of Mathematics and Physics, PUH building and Technological Park Building. Building comprises three programme/volume segments: three wings comprising chairs on the northern side, a stack of lecture rooms on the southern side and the interaction volume in between, connecting the public spaces while at the same time allowing the chair wings some distance and individuality. Entrances to lecture rooms are arranged via bridges from the galleries which run along the chair wings. Bridges introduce a strong dynamics into the composition; the stack of lecture rooms is topped with library and restaurant volumes, both with excellent views of the hills to the south of the city. On the northern side of the interaction volume, chair wings are attached with communication cores; the length of each wing corresponds to area allocated to each chair. At the south-eastern corner of the site, the volume containing dean's office and administration is attached to the interaction volume, construction-free except for communication core.
Beneath the interaction volume, administrative volume and chair wings, three floors of underground parking are arranged, comprising 600 parking spaces. The three outdoor areas comprise the principal entrance plaza with a sculpture and two parks between chair wings, a more intimate area for outdoor spring lounging.
