Josip Costaperaria studied architecture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna at Otto Wagner studio (1899/1900). He didn't finished his study under Wagner’s mentor ship but only in 1927 with prof. Clemens Holzmeister at the Akademie der bildenden Kunst in Vienna. In the Austro-Hungarian monarchy period he lived in Trieste with Slovenian concert singer Mira Dev. He collaborated with Maks Fabiani on the project for the Narodni dom – Hotel Balkan in Trieste. After World War II he designed Ljubljana Fair Congress (1921), Ljubljana Palace (1923-1925), the house Šuklje (1928), the house Dular (1930) and housing Šahovnica - Checkerboard on Vrtača (1931-1933). He was the architect of Senator and former Ljubljana mayor Ivan Hribar and a member of the Rotary Club Ljubljana. He was one of the Petkovec - in modernism oriented group of architects, which were the opposition to Plečnik.
