Text description provided by the architects. A concept house in a representative area in Bucharest appears as both a subject and an object, towards becoming a place of fashionable meetings and events. The new design approach is hosted by the newly rebuild classical façades of the old building, completely revitalized inside.

A height gain of the building has appeared as a necessity to the functional role of a belvedere point, while spicing the concept with the 360 degree view to the neighborhood and the city. The major gesture for our building is the classical syntagma of a composition: sculpture above pedestal.

The sensation of levitation between the classical pedestal and the abstract bronze intervention stresses upon the duality amidst the old and the new, while revealing the special function of the belvedere point present at this height.


The gigantic bronze canopy protects and intrigues the viewer towards the street, suffering an abstract undefined transformation towards the back of the house.

The house is a sign within the city, a sign that refreshes the identity of the place by new coordinates. The gaining in height of the house is in fact a Cantilevered Abstract Product of the city. It’s a c.a.p.
