njiric+ arhitekti was founded by Hrvoje Njiric in 2001 and is based in Zagreb, Croatia.

Hrvoje Njiric gained acknowledgement in the 90’s with projects developed by the former njiric+njiric partnership. The schemes for Europan (3 first prizes) and Slovenian projects for Baumaxx and McDonald’s were widely published and awarded. The new practice evolved from and continued the work of the former office.
njiric+ regards architecture to be much more than a physical definition of its boundaries or a formal assemblage of building materials. It’s non-physical aspects are about phenomena of contemporary society and mass culture.

Apart from his private practice, Hrvoje Njiric has been engaged in teaching since the mid 90’s. He served as a full-time professor at the TU Graz (2000-05) as a successor of Guenter Domenig.
