Authors’ Comment

Single family house, on ground floor, first floor and attic with gross area od 220 sqm. On a 500 sqm plot area, keeping the east orientation of the existent building which was extended - the old building had no architectural value. The structure is on reinforced concrete columns and beams, closings on Ytong, PVC windows, and natural stone finishes bring a modern vernacular shape to the new construction.
The architectural concept tries to put together the configurations of traditional/vernacular Romanian rural architecture in a modern way. Using vernacular quality as a renewable resource of value and creativity is essential. Any gesture, intent, idea, conformation or edification of the use of tradition can be a step on the path of identifying and expressing value. Through proportionality and through the building materials and techniques used, the Buzau hull can be a starting point in an actual approach but not neglecting the resource offered by tradition.
Using volumetric analysis according to regulating routes, reinterpreting the function, suggesting the original materials, attempts to bring the traditional features of the architecture of the Romanian houses to life.
