Authors’ Comment

"Stefan cel Mare building" is located near the intersection between Tunari Street and Stefan cel Mare Street, which provides easy access to public transport, including the subway.
The partition is developed around a central core that allows the creation of a generous open space with the possibility of various partitions.
The design reminds of the industrial buildings, where brick and cast iron elements defined this architectural language.
The project aims to be a sustainable investment with Class A materials plus finishes and curtain walls with minimal energy consumption.
By marking the horizontal register with metal profiles and the vertical with alternating glazed panels and ceramic plates, a slim volumetry is obtained.
Despite the small size of the site and its neighbors, the final result presents an integrated building in the urban context of the area.
After a creative and constructive two-year journey, the office building is BREEAM certified and received recognition in the CIJ Romania 2016 gala, being awarded the BEST SMALL OFFICE DEVELOPMENT OF THE YEAR.
