Text description provided by the architects. A big space defined by communist block of flats, urbanism for the 80, rigid and alienated. On the other side of the boulevard, a sea of houses.
A space crowded between important streets that are intersecting in a place known as Munci square. The plot that must be developed is right in the middle of this storm…
The site is very small and is considered almost unbuildable because of the complexity caused by the underground networks, the nearby gas station or even because of the access problem caused by the network of crowded streets.Apparently a common brief, a common solution – an office tower.
The project takes the traffic flows of the area, both on sidewalks and on streets, from their sum resulting the building’s footprint on the ground.
In order to confer personality to the building, the facade became the element which confers a dynamic attitude to the volume and the alignment will be the attitude to the surroundings – provoke and complete the square space.
The ground floor was designed to be open and transparent, with large glass surfaces to better integrate the building into the area and city life (otherwise quite used), and the facades potentate the entire assembly in a sculptural direction.
