Slovenian architecture company Enota made a design proposal for PTUJ Archaeological Museum. The museum is a facility that comes in two floors in PTUJ, Slovenia.

The structure has been designed to fill the town’s natural edge gap and to recreate the green belt of the entire town’s northern edge. Surrounding the museum are mediaeval structures like the Conventual Franciscan monastery on the East side, a castle on the Northside, and the Dominican Monastery on the west.

The museum proposal will feature three cellar buildings. Each of the three buildings will have a large foundation pit dug.
