Ordoreanu village, Clinceni district, was declared “martyr” for it was demolished in 1987 to make way for the hypothetical Danube-Bucharest Canal. After the anti-communist Revolution the people were given back land in the present location, near the Mihăilești-Cornetu barrier lake. The nearby forrest and the meadow of the Argeş river made the location attractive for a young dynamic family, fond of exercise in the wild.
On a site of 3000sqm we were asked to design a small weekend house, an alternative to the Bucharest density: minimal functions for a one child family with annexes, pool and tenis court. The amoebic shape of the main building was designed to integrate the entire site and its uses. The entry is connected with the car shed, while the living areas are opening to the main terrace and the pool, but to a more intimate terrase as well, near the vegetable garden. Even it was set that the most confortable living is only at the ground floor, the clients asked for two intimate retreat zones. The two cubic cocoons configure a local topography, the house being diffrently perceived from any direction.

Eroii Sanitari / 10.07.2017

text
O vilă pe bulevardul Eroii Sanitari (făcută de Simotta în 1934-5), compusă din două apartamente, caută să recapete mândria de la început prin reparare, înzdrăvenire și minime modificări.
Intervențiile asupra exteriorului au implicat consolidarea pe toată înălțimea fațadei și au condus la soluții locale menite să păstreze raportul dintre planul accentelor (șepci acoperite cu olane peste ferestre, jardiniere dedesubt) și planul exterior al fațadei.
La interior, tema a prevăzut păstrarea nealterată a tuturor spațiilor principale ale celor două locuințe (câte trei camere pe fiecare nivel) și concentrarea intervențiilor asupra zonelor de serviciu ale vechii case, transformate pentru a acomoda nevoi contemporane.
Tâmplăria a fost recondiționată în interior și în exterior; clanțe, schielduri etc. au fost șlefuite și uneori refăcute după model; parchetul original păstrat; mici piese decorative turnate după mulajul celor încă intacte; soclul din tencuiala spițuită a fost refăcut, alături de elementele accesului principal.
Demisolul a suferit modificări mai importante. Aici încăperile de serviciu inițiale (centrală, spălătorie, uscătorie) au fost transformate într-o mică locuință independentă.

House with inner courtyard / 17.06.2017

1 / 3
Exemplu de title pt imagine

text
In a residential area typical for semi-detached houses, the project introduces an interior garden, distinct from the front, lateral and rear ones imposed by the building regulations. Placed in the middle of the plot and of the house, this light and ventilation courtyard is at the same time a winter garden, an elegant extension of the front entrance, a place to enjoy a eating outdoors … The whole house swirls around this void and opens towards it through controlled openings of the other rooms. More than anything else, this courtyard becomes responsible for introducing a playful depth to the experience of the other areas of the house. At ground level, the surface of the courtyard is completely used and even virtually amplified by projecting one of its walls to the limit of the plot. A small balcony, a bow window and a crossing enrich the use of its height and constitute small events that occupy the void and enhance its spatial experience.
The longitudinal cross section of the house is uneven, with a taller cornice towards the street/north façade and a lower one towards the rear-garden/south façade, thus allowing the sun to more easily enter the depth of the inner courtyard. The distinction between the different outdoor spaces that the house has to offer is enhanced by the fact that the communication with the outside world is only possible through this inner courtyard.

This real estate development had to deal with a simple design request: cheap inline houses, nicely ordered above the large plain in the periphery of Bucharest. Initially, the developer had alreary finished two similar projects, with identical houses placed in a row vis-à-vis the parking spots. The hope and the real stake of this engagement was the construction of similar houses regarding both the costs and the construction techniques already tested by the client, dressing it in a new “design” layer which could customize this development among the many recenly built gated ensembles and simultaneosly could emphase the need for differentiation of the future dwellers.
In spite of this, the enlarged geometry of the site, which allowed the configuration of two rows of houses back to back, inspired us a certain collective conviviality and, if not too much to say, the potential of an inceptive urbanity. This was the reason for designing a small central square, which could benefit from this potential and offer a minimum communal space for the remote periphery. So, every house had to have a small acces to this central space which could coagulate the 23 dwellings, but also reestablish the urban model as a valid cultural asset amidst the kaleidoscope of recently built gated communities.

Level Eight Apartment / 21.05.2015

Exemplu de title pt imagine

text
The medium size apartment was bought by a young family to be transformed into a pleasant home. The restriction on the intervention to the structure of the 80's block of flats has focused the interior design on the furniture. The pieces are attached to the surface of the walls and the visible surfaces are finished with materials that create decoration through mirroring or by facing one another - wood and white fiberboard in the small bedroom. The same seamless furniture is creating a see-through barrier between spaces with different use, by developing cur-outs from the entrance to the kitchen. The finishing of the walls and floor are discrete and neutral - white, grey, black - but also the natural nuance of wood.
The lamps are mare on the building site from specific objects - wooden sticks, metal cable, electrical socket - and create a connection between the rooms.

Building Stroe Postelnicul Str. / 20.10.2014

1 / 3
Exemplu de title pt imagine

text
Situated on the streets that open at East from Calea Floreasca whilst descending into crossing the lakes, the building dwells six apartments, on four levels. Located on a corner – at the junction between Stroe Postelnicu and Rachmaninov street – the building’s blind walls are on the verge of the site. Six out of seven apartments share the same level, while the remaining one occupies the entire ground floor.
Despite it being finalised in 2014, the project succeded an initial solution based on future expectations of spatial standards for buildings that would develop in the North area of the city. The former idea was reconsidered starting with 2010 and developed into the final resolution of having two apartments per level, soon before the structure had been completed. Therefore, the main issue was to find the boundary between the two apartments while preserving and bringing as few alterations as possible to the structure. Furthermore, the facades were designed according to the adjusted interior.
The facades open up towards East and South, providing light even for the most remote corners of the apartment. The ventilated facade not only emulates the ethos behind the interior arrangement, but is also a response to the site’s constraints by turning on the narrow elevation, thus highlighting the corner. The same corner, together with the main entrance, shelter on the ground level gardens that act as a buffer between the public and private area.

text
The design of the project is a response to a speculative brief requiring a block of flats on an elongated site. The monolith emerges from the blind wall and opens to the courtyard through generous loggias. Emphasised through contrasting finishes, they represent the cut-outs in the façade and act as connectors for some spaces. Furthermore, by using the same materials to clad the façade as well as the attic, the volume started to gain a unitary shape, becoming a so called monolith.
One of the set requirements for the project was to offer flexibility. Considering the financial unpredictability, a residential unit that would dwell only 6, 5 or only 4 apartments was imagined. The different configurations are possible due to the building’s likelihood of developing as a semi-detached unit.

Cotroceni Extention / 20.07.2012

Exemplu de title pt imagine

text
Rehabillitating existing dwellings in Bucharest, especially in neighboourhoods with a clearly-defined ambiance- ex. Cotroceni- is an advisable practice, but in reality, it rarely has positive results. How and how much you negociate the boundary between the neccesities of the new materials and those of the existing ones, more or less damaged is left to the sensitivity of the architect and to the client’s expectations and budget.
Rehabillitating the dwelling in Cotroceni meant first a change in the vertical circulation. Initially, the house had one independent acces per floor. The quality of the acces spaces corresponded to the importance of the inner spaces and the social hierarchy established between those who used them, in ascending order from the basement to the first floor, whose access staircase occupied much of the courtyard and of the facade. All this access system was replaced by a main vertical circulation, in accordance with the new use.
The loft’s superelevation raised the ethical problem of the completion and continuity of the modern facade. We chose to interpose between the area upon which we intervened and the existing house, an element taken from the modernistic language- the horizontal window- reinterpreted through its exagerated length, surrounding the house, with vertical deviations where the inner space required it.
We hope that this villa shall become a successful stilistical exercise in the neighbourhood’s scenery.

Half-Site House / 13.10.2011

The requirement for this suburban house is usual for owr days: a ‘minimal’ house, but as spacious as possible for the needs of a contemporary familiy, and the most generous courtyard to justify the escape and refuge from the city. This negotiation between the yard and the house lot was resolved by splitting the plot into two, thereby maximizing the potential of each other.
The house became a virtual cube in a close enough relationship with the neighborhood, according to the local regulations. It is this relationship we tried to renegotiate through the upstair terraces, allowing good illumination of bedrooms, but also privacy and comfort. The same type of cut in the basic volume was operated on the ground floor to obtain a covered dining room either inside or outside. The virtual cube acquired depth, the inside-outside relationship (physical or psychological) being negotiated through these intimate spaces.
From conditioning budget, the cubic form was no longer feasible for the beneficiary. The intention to remove the last plate and attic-roof the whole house has put us in difficulty at the moment. The less obvious solution was reporting the attic areas to the strong home spaces – the terraces - so that collection of meteoric water does not adversely affect this simple volume.

text
The project-single family house- is the result of stacking an existing warehouse-a building with only one level, former annex of the neighbouring house. The position between two existing buildings, the dimensioning and the limited possibilities to place the windows has deffiningly determined the inner organization and the volumetry of the intervention. The facade of the new dwelling is marked by gables to show the change in the subordonation relationship between the house and the old annex, into a relationship of dialogue between two neighbouring houses.
It was envisioned to keep the spatial figure and the generous natural lighting of the interior of the former workshop, leaving the inner space as free as possible, keeping the maximized glazings at least for the groung floor area. On the ground floor the space is open, flexible; the kitchen represents the only fixed core, thus becoming a pivotal point. The exterior decoration was a long negociation between the client’s passion for the exuberance of Hundertwasser’s archhitecture and our option for pure, rational forms. Resulted a hybrid, where the decoration areas, done by an artist after his design, are placed in a composition intended to emphasize the shapes of the main volume.
The building’s final image remains open, as a result of the negociations during the works.

House 86 Extension / 20.08.2011

text
Pipera Tunari Street is the main road in Pipera neighborhood – the first limit of the project – that is part of Voluntari city, which overlaps DJ200B, a county road that connects the city of Bucharest. Pipera is separated from the rest of the Voluntari city by a Tunari forest, the second limit. The other limits are the farm land and Bucharest beltway. Situated in Oxford Gardens real-estate development, these are the kind of landmarks that the Vila 86 extension relates to, although these are not close limits.
The new addition contains an interior pool, palestra, sauna, jacuzzi, bath and other spaces of delight. The site was balanced comparing to the size of the existing house, allowing the placement of the new addition only on the site limit. The new building is generous in size and number of spaces, generating a bulk volume, the space of the pool having double height. The new volume is connected to the ground floor of the existing building, from interior and also from exterior, making the pool space similar as importance to the living room. The space of the pool was challenging to accommodate an intimate and bright interior space, considering that the new volume is placed on the site limit, neighboring the main street. Hence, the bulk volume is opened to the street through small yards incorporated in the building, and also through a long and narrow window placed at the floor level, allowing the swimmers to see outside without being observed. The façade facing the garden has large windows that slide completely opening to the exterior. A skylight is placed above the pool. The skylight is made of structural narrow concrete beans with 15/70cm in section and 780cm length, placed on a 75cm spacing that were made of precast concrete, later transported to the building site and placed in situ. The beans transform the volume of the building creating shading that reduces the greenhouse effect on the interior space, still keeping the heat input during summer and winter.
The new volume is therefore a limit that, although bulk, allows natural light suited for the interior spaces and the connection with the existing building, garden, and street. The urban landmarks have influenced the opportunity to invest in order to enhance the comfort of the house.

The building proposed for extension is an imposing residence in Primăverii neighborhood, overlooking the Herăstrău Park. The private client required a project similar with a feasibility study in order to estimate the best solution that complies with the design tasks. The extension was suggested by the client as enclosing the outer spaces of the house - terraces, balconies. This suggestion was converted in our proposed project: to keep with obstinacy these spaces and to build the extension around them, while respecting the protected area planning requirements. The natural lighting of the deep spaces of the house is protected and new particular interior areas are created.
A spa in the basement, an enlarged living room at ground floor, a master bedroom with natural light bathroom and a dressing at first floor. In the attic, a total change by creating living spaces in the entire area. We implemented these requirements by placing these areas around the existing patio that stands as an atrium that illuminates and allows visual communication between the different spaces. The atrium becomes the light center of the house, decorated with “drawing room” furniture and plants. At the ground floor, the space will be completely open to the exterior courtyard, placed over the extended basement, with a link to it through an underground level courtyard.
Spaces are designed for different climates: lush vegetation indoors, damp vegetation near the spa in the underground courtyard, designed planting over the extended basement over the mineral space of the concrete structure.

In an intensive real estate development from the outskirts of Bucharest we had to deal with an est-west lakeside oriented site. Two quantitative ideas structured our proposal: the necessity of lakeside view for every apartment and the avoidance of completely north orientation of each. The cross section of Unité d'habitation seemed ideal, combined with the rhomboidal planimetry which permitted large terraces lakeside oriented.
It seemed to us that the client heard about the Pruitt-Igoe disaster by definitely refusing such management risk.

text
Site and programme both led to the decision to explode the whole into five separate but identical units. Each unit houses living and dining areas, kitchen, three bedrooms and a large terrace – a small holliday house.
This solution allows for the independent use of each unit/house, for renting several adjacent houses for a larger group, or even for the use of the separate bedroom units that share the living areas on the top level of each house.
More than a decision based on the creative interpretation of the programme and planning for versatility, this is also a technical and strategic position regarding the implantation on an irregular, but steep slope. This also generates nuanced, ambiguous areas between the five houses, thus creating a unique setting for each unit in relation with the surrounding landscape.

A residential project situated out in the fields and far from the city, in an area adjacent to the A2 Highway and the traffic ring of the Bucharest metropolis. Disregarding these, the main issue was considered to be a company situated in close proximity which is responsible for the bad scents in the area. Considering all the issues negative that the site was posing, the resolution was situated at a microlevel, and decided that the apartments will not be orientated exclusively towards the field. Instead, they could be orientated towards a green interior space, an olfactory oasis. This space, secluded from the external, would be used by the residents as a background to different sports activities, short walks of games for different age groups. The sides which comprise apartments, especially the two and three bedroom ones, have the horizontal circulation system from 3 to 3 levels, as well as interior courtyards in order to naturally ventilate the kitchen. An access route encompasses the blocks, delimiting it from the field.
After all, it seems that the client has heard of the Pruitt-Igoe disaster and declined any risks that this configuration might impose.

text
With a street opening of only 10 meters the site occupies most of the interior of the block. Hence, it is sur¬rounded by blind walls on six sides. The resulted build¬ing simultaneously stands for the will to realise the site's economic potential and for the lack of fixed regulation in the case of a irregular plot surrounded by con¬structions which do not comply with it. The building does not aim at negotiat¬ing with the neighbours either its general size or the scale of its details: the total built mass highlights the expectations of the city officials for the urban development of the area. Given the context, the additional stakes of the project were to add complementary exterior spaces to the vari¬ous flats, thus making use of the view over the neighbourhood. Privatly owned, these yards, balconies or terraces turn into exposed areas to outside looks, in the same way that the neighbourhood opens up to the view from above. This reciprocity softens the differenc¬es in scale and links everyday living practices in the neighbourhood with those of the new owners.

The site of this project: a wonderful middle sub-Carpathian hills field. Theme: holiday residende with living room, kitchen, dining room and office, 2 bedrooms, hobby room in the attic, covered parking.
What interested us regarding the proposed configuration was primarily landscape richness. Thus, we chose to perch the holiday house as high as possible. And since the back of the lot aggressive slope did not allow its hilltop position, we had to develop the necessary functions vertically. The house has a semi-level configuration because of the intention to raise it above the first row of trees in the valley. Thus, the hilly landscape can be admired even in cool weather conditions, unfavorable to outdoor activities.
The remaining land can be arranged or not, positioning a pool with optimal length in the valley, along with the customary area of the arbour with grill between fruit trees on the hill.

The project aimed at restoring the existing house roof structure, extending it with a pavilion in the garden and adding a awning at the entry into the new house. The drainage, the covering of the old access to the basement, as well as the need of storage space for garden tools - alltogether have led to the alteration of the simple geometry coverage pavilion into a bridge - between old and new structures - impractical for adults and adressed to the children in particular. Both main pavilion area and the children’s split level started from the requirement to better observe the garden and are originally just that - playgrounds in relation to the court.
Interpretation of specific household annexes of traditional houses in Bucharest, its interior space is opening up the garden through a porch / covered terrace and encloses the courtyard to the posterior limit of the plot. In this way, the property has no rear (back); the depth is the one that nuances the degrees of privacy from the street or from neighboring space.
Looming outside the pavilion roof shaped pulse on successive plans of the blind walls of core silhouettes of the island.

The client for this project, having with a relatively large plot of land, asked us to design a building to engage as much with the courtyard and thus with nature. The desire to escape the city started with quantitative criteria and tried to be organized by this project through the quality of resulted spaces.
According to this view, we started the project in reverse, from garden to house. We proposed dividing the court into a series of different landscapes that enrich the area of land: an orchard, a vegetable area, the main courtyard with swimming pool, a Zen garden for guests, the roadway and a flowery access courtyard.
Between these landscapes lies in the middle the house and enjoys the quality of each, also subordinated to the cardinal points. The living room becomes the important area, visibility and access center to each of imagined realities. Its central configuration allowed large openings to three distinct areas of the yard, as well to three others of the home: access to the kitchen and garage, the guest area, the upstairs night zone with master and children bedrooms.

The project consists of four houses located in a new urbanization of Glina commune. The main requirement of the client was that these houses to be effective in terms of construction, but at the same time to have a sufficient degree of differentiation.
In this respect, they chose two directions of work. The first – the attenuation of street front line repetition by the rotated disposal towards buildings’ alignment, and the second - the intervention over the façade, without affecting the inside.
Houses are based on a masonry-made prototype of which the oversized gaps will have wood panels and joinery. The facades’ variety will be in proportion between the carpentry and wood panels, chosen depending on the sunlight, the need for privacy and the importance of interior space.
The house plan is influenced by the relationship with nature (the court). The main access and exit to the pool area is through two interior courtyards, which provide transition, controlling and ordering the natural frame.

The principles of this project can be applied easily at much larger scale assemblies.

Lack of urban planning parameters’ correlation set by the planning certificate, may be an opportunity for architect. Thus, with a surplus of built space, we could cancel the CUT block, the one whose volumes reveal through a simple extrusion.
To each level a certain amount of excess surface was distributed, in such a way as to avoid the monotony that would result from repeating the current floor. In this respect, the client’s requirement to maximize built surface was transformed into a tool for architecture.
Real estate pressure does not always create happy situations. Thus, the shape in plan, resulted from the withdrawals, has serious geometric disadvantages for both space organization and structural concept.

For the Viilor project, the office realized the "theme's illustration". In current practice, in the process urban plans approval, "illustrating the theme" tries to demonstrate the viability of some situations occasionally "unlikely" due to pressure of real estate market.

Located on a former factory field, a residential is desired, that would occupy 5 times the field surface. The high density of the built volume has imposed two major work themes: the possibility of sunlight and the ratio between the existing scale and that of the new buildings. Extending the main directions of circulation, four islands were defined volumetric, with variable height, so that the street profile’s modification from specific residential to commercial-like to be done gradually.
The study has a high degree of abstraction and is limited to the graphical representation of surfaces associated to functions such as housing, office and commerce, which, in turn, conditions the number of parking spaces. It is a mathematical game that lays behind any future real estate realities.

To make a house in the attic for a family and a grandmother? We were faced with a resolute acquisition of an attic in top of a block of flats by the visionary client, in the Domenii neighborhood.
The inherent problems regarding the approach of such a project were mainly related to the need of space that needed to be inflated to make place for a house. We chose to keep the cornice and the ridge at the same height in order not to interfere with the existing building architecture. As a result, the roof sometimes develops into several rooftops, within the limits of the ridge and in those of the technical necessities of cover sheet. Several “sails” in the roof open to the neighbourhood by tympanums that let the light pass through the slots between the existing cornice and the “sail”. Therefore, the space becomes generous, leaving place for an apartment with two areas of mezzanine, four terraces and a studio, and an apartment for the grandmother.
It was taken into account that the structure of the house in the attic not to change the structural requirements of the existing building. In order to avoid the reinforcement of the building, we evaluated the loads: the finished material tile was thus replaced with tin, while the new structures were light, made of wood. The house looks good today with the “sails” spread over the neighborhood’s rooftops and pots of plants on the terraces perched on top of the block.
