Din ce \n ce mai mul]i oameni redescoper` farmecul locuirii urbane, pe \n`l]ime, iar ceea ce \i atrage sunt tocmai proiectele mai flexibile, mai individualizate [i orientate c`tre client. Noul album din seria igloo best v` prezint` 19 astfel de proiecte, selectate ]inând totodat` cont de grija pentru coeren]a ansamblului [i inserarea \n context [i pentru inova]ie \n raport cu cerin]ele contemporane de locuire. Fie c` stabilesc repere puternice, de calitate, \n zone (sub)urbane controversate, fie c` recupereaz` [i reinterpreteaz` cu inspira]ie un anumit tip de ]esut urban sau pur [i simplu ofer` alte repere de confort \n compara]ie cu blocul comunist – „mo[tenirea” la care ne raport`m cu to]ii, con[tient sau nu, aceste noi proiecte ilustreaz` faptul c` locuirea colectiv` poate \nsemna confort [i individualitate, ba chiar, câteodat`, convie]uire cu natura. More and more people are starting to rediscover the charm of vertical urban living, being attracted by projects that are more flexible, individual and client-oriented. The latest album in the igloo best series presents 19 such projects, whose selection has taken into account the care for the coherence of the whole and its insertion into the given context, as well as the degree of innovation in relation to contemporary living requirements. Whether they establish powerful, quality landmarks in controversial (sub)urban areas, or they recover and inspiredly reinterpret a certain type of urban tissue, or they simply offer an alternative of comfort in relation to the communist block – the “inheritance” we all relate to, whether we realize it or not – these new projects illustrate the fact that collective housing can mean comfort and individuality, and sometimes even communion with nature.

Noi locuin]e colective New collective housing |n condi]iile unei urbaniz`ri intensive, generalizate, locuirea colectiv` – unul dintre programele fundamentale ale arhitecturii contemporane – prime[te un rol aparte \ntr-o strategie integrat` de dezvoltare sustenabil`. Chiar dac` la noi \n ]ar` nu putem \nc` vorbi de programe urbane majore [i coerente, interesul pentru stabilirea unor noi standarde \n ceea ce prive[te locuirea colectiv`, ba chiar pentru redefinirea ei a devenit din ce \n ce mai vizibil \n ultimii ani, atât din partea dezvoltatorilor, cât [i a arhitec]ilor. Dup` ce \n anii ’70-’80 programul locuin]elor colective a fost discreditat de dezvolt`ri masive, strict func]ionale, menite a oferi rapid [i ieftin o cas` pentru num`rul mare de oameni care s-au mutat la ora[, dup` 1990 a urmat o cre[tere, adesea necontrolat`, a suburbiilor, cu case \n[iruite, grupate \n comunit`]i \nchise, opace. Oamenii \ns` au \nceput s` redescopere treptat farmecul locuirii urbane, pe \n`l]ime, iar ceea ce i-a atras au fost tocmai proiectele mai flexibile, mai individualizate [i orientate c`tre client, oferindu-i acestuia prilejul de a-[i defini identitatea [i prin spa]iul \n care tr`ie[te. Fie c` stabilesc repere puternice, de calitate, \n zone (sub)urbane controversate, fie c` recupereaz` [i reinterpreteaz` cu inspira]ie un anumit tip de ]esut urban sau pur [i simplu ofer` alte repere de confort \n compara]ie cu blocul comunist – „mo[tenirea” la care ne raport`m cu to]ii, con[tient sau nu, aceste proiecte de locuire colectiv` au curajul de a propune perspective diferite, de a oferi alternative la standardizare. Noul album din seria igloo best v` prezint` 19 astfel de proiecte: selec]ia ]ine totodat` cont de grija pentru coeren]a ansamblului [i inserarea \n context, pentru inova]ie \n raport cu cerin]ele contemporane de locuire [i ilustreaz` faptul c` locuirea colectiv` poate \nsemna confort [i individualitate, ba chiar, câteodat`, convie]uire cu natura. Dimensiunile diferite ale proiectelor [i procentele diverse de personalizare a locuirii dau o not` de eterogenitate albumului, \ns` \ntregul st` sub semnul, unificator, al unei gândiri arhitecturale de calitate, de pe urma c`reia câ[tig` atât ora[ul, cât [i beneficiarul final. O parte dintre proiecte au fost de altfel premiate la competi]ii locale [i na]ionale de specialitate [i ne bucur` faptul c` numeroase cl`diri sunt semnate de arhitec]i tineri, dornici de a schimba \n mod semnificativ percep]ia general` asupra locuirii colective. Este un prim pas c`tre (re)\n]elegerea fundamentelor locuirii urbane, care va privilegia, poate, \n viitor apari]ia unor spa]ii comune mai ample, mai bine conturate. Mai mult, pe parcursul realiz`rii acestui album, am sesizat apari]ia unor noi proiecte de calitate, atât \n Bucure[ti, cât [i \n alte ora[e mari ale ]`rii, pe care sper`m s` le putem aduna cât mai curând \ntr-o nou` publica]ie.

Due to an intensive and generalized urbanization process, collective housing – one of the main programs of contemporary architecture – has received a cardinal role in an integrated sustainable development strategy. Even though in Romania there cannot yet be any talk of coherent urban programs on a large scale, the interest for establishing new standards related to collective housing, and even for redefining it, has become increasingly more manifest during the last few years, both on the side of real estate developers and that of architects. After the ‘70s and ‘80s, when collective housing was discredited by massive, strictly functional developments, meant to quickly provide cheap homes for the large number of people migrating to the city, the ‘90s brought about an incontrollable growth of the suburbs, defined by row houses grouped to form enclosed, opaque communities. Nevertheless, the people have gradually started to rediscover the charm of vertical urban living, after being attracted by projects that are more flexible, individual and client-oriented, thus offering the client the possibility of defining himself through the space he inhabits. Whether they establish powerful, quality landmarks in controversial (sub)urban areas, or they recover and inspiredly reinterpret a certain type of urban tissue, or they simply offer an alternative of comfort in relation to the communist block – the “inheritance” we all relate to, whether we realize it or not – these new collective housing projects have the courage of opening up new perspectives and offering alternatives to standardization. The latest album in the igloo best series presents 19 such projects, whose selection has taken into account the care for the coherence of the whole and its insertion into the given context, as well as the degree of innovation in relation to contemporary living requirements, thus illustrating the fact that collective housing can mean comfort and individuality, and sometimes even communion with nature. The different scales of the projects and the different degrees of personalization of the living conditions bring a note of heterogeneity into the album, and yet the whole sits under the unifying sign of quality architectural approach, which benefits the city and the inhabitant alike. Moreover, several projects featured here were granted awards at local and national architecture competitions, and it makes us glad that many among them were designed by young architects, willing to make a notable change in the way people perceive collective housing. This is a first step to the (new) understanding of urban living, which will perhaps, in the future, facilitate the development of other, more generous and better outlined, common spaces. Furthermore, while putting together this album, we have noticed the emergence of several quality projects, in Bucharest as well as in other large Romanian cities, which we hope to bring together as soon as possible within the pages of a follow-up publication.

Imobil de apartamente MCN MCN Housing Building

Construit \n cartierul Bucure[tii Noi, ce p`streaz` [i ast`zi un aer patriarhal, acest imobil de locuin]e (re)interpreteaz` pe vertical` [i \ntr-un singur volum via]a la curte, stabilind un dialog contemporan, inspirat, cu specificul zonei. Cele [apte apartamente ale construc]iei de joas` \n`l]ime sunt diferite: arhitectura se adapteaz` pe de o parte vecin`t`]ilor – calcane, str`zi, curtea din spate, iar pe de alt` parte obiectivului de a oferi fiec`rui locatar un contact direct cu exteriorul. |n consecin]`, toate locuin]ele de]in spa]ii care comunic` pe mai multe niveluri [i prezint` vitraje mari c`tre str`zile [i cur]ile adiacente. Fie c` au cur]i proprii (cum se \ntâmpl` cu apartamentele de la parter), fie c` au logii (la cele dou` etaje) sau terase (la ultimul nivel, cu o retragere impus` de regulamentul urbanistic), interioarele se deschid c`tre gr`din` [i \mprejurimi prin spa]ii largi [i luminoase. Cu excep]ia unuia singur, apartamentele se desf`[oar` pe dou` niveluri, \n aceea[i dorin]` de a permite transparen]e totale \n zonele de zi, dintr-o parte \n cealalt` a interioarelor [i, \n plus, de a aduce \n apartamente cât mai mult din confortul locuirii la cas`. Tot pentru valorificarea optim` a spa]iilor de locuit, circula]iile comune au fost reduse la minimum, permi]ând o a[ezare diferit` \n sec]iune pentru fiecare apartament, \n func]ie de pozi]ia sa \n cl`dire, iar garajele au fost amplasate la parter, pe latura lung` a cl`dirii. Unul dintre meritele principale ale acestui proiect este tocmai capacitatea de a gândi un volum-peisaj, care leag` \n mod inteligent spa]iile interioare de cele exterioare, pe cele construite de cele neconstruite [i se integreaz` armonios \n contextul dat.

Located in the Bucure[tii Noi neighbourhood, which still maintains a rather patriarchal feel, this housing building vertically (re)interprets country life within a single volume, establishing a contemporary and inspired dialogue with the particularities of the area. The seven apartments located inside the low-rise building are all different from one another. Their architecture adapts to the vicinities – blind walls, streets, the back yard -, while trying to keep up with the purpose of offering each inhabitant the chance of direct contact with the surroundings. Therefore, all of the housing units contain spaces that communicate on several levels with the outside environment, as well as large glazed areas facing the adjoining streets and courtyards. Whether they have their own courtyards (as is the case of the apartments on the ground floor), loggias (the two floors) or terraces (the topmost level, which retreats due to urban regulations), the interiors open up towards the garden and the surroundings through generous, well-lit spaces. With one exception, the apartments take up two levels, following in with the same intent of creating fully transparent daytime areas, and also seeking to create an environment similar to that of individual housing. In order to take full advantage of the living spaces, the common circulation nodes have been reduced to a minimum, allowing a different positioning for each apartment, based on its location inside the building. The garages were placed on the ground floor, on the building’s long side. One of the main virtues of this project is the architects’ very capacity of designing a building as if it were a landscape, intelligently connecting the inside and the outside, the built and the unbuilt, and thus harmoniously integrating the volume within its context.

Imobil de apartamente pe strada Mircea Eliade Housing Building on Mircea Eliade Street

Situat` \ntr-o zon` reziden]ial` din nordul Bucure[tiului, cl`direa beneficiaz` de un context arhitectural valoros, datând din perioada interbelic`, de care arhitec]ii au ]inut cont \n elaborarea proiectului, f`r` a renun]a \ns` la un discurs contemporan. Lucr`rile de construc]ie au fost completate \n dou` etape: \ntâi au ap`rut cele dou` volume cu apartamente, conectate prin intermediul unei cur]i private \mprejmuite de un zid de piatr` \n form` de „L”, ce marcheaz` zonele de acces \n cl`dire, iar apoi a fost extins garajul din subteran, solu]ie aleas` pentru a nu „mutila” fa]ada prin introducerea unei rampe de acces auto. Structura de baz` a cl`dirii a fost realizat` din beton armat, \n timp ce pere]ii interiori de compartimentare sunt din gips-carton, iar cadrele ferestrelor, din rame de aluminiu, colorate cu grafit. Cele dou` volume au o structur` extrem de simpl` – dou` cutii de form` cubic`, ce \mpart un soclu de piatr`. Orientarea lor – unul spre vest, iar cel`lalt spre sud – a fost motivat` atât de configura]ia lotului, cât [i de dorin]a de a prezerva vegeta]ia \nalt` din zon`, care devine, astfel, o parte a proiectului, contribuind la integrarea sa \n context. Prin placarea cu c`r`mid` a mai multe suprafe]e mari din planul fa]adelor, noua cl`dire apare ca o adi]ie natural`, dezvoltat` \n mod organic \n cadrul existentului. Primele patru etaje ale cl`dirii sunt ocupate de câte un singur apartament tip, ce beneficiaz` de dou` terase generoase spre sud [i spre vest, \n timp ce ultimele dou` sunt rezervate pentru un duplex spectaculos, cu teras` panoramic`.

Located in a residential area in the North of Bucharest, the building enjoys a valuable architectural context, dating back to the interwar period, which the architects have respected, while, at the same time, maintaining a contemporary discourse. The construction works were completed in two stages. First to be built were the two volumes containing the apartments. These are connected through a private courtyard, surrounded by an L-shaped stone wall marking the areas of access inside the building. The second stage consisted in expanding the underground garage, a solution that was chosen in order not to mutilate the façade by introducing an auto access ramp. The building’s structure was done in reinforced concrete, while the interior separating walls are in dry plaster and the window frames, in grapphite coloured aluminum. The two volumes are defined by a clear and simple structure – two cubic boxes, sharing the same stone base. Their orientation – one towards the West and the other towards the South – was dictated by the site’s configuration, as well as by the desire to protect the tall vegetation in the area, which thus became a part of the project, helping integrate the volumes into their context. Due to the use of bricks on several large surfaces along the façades, the new building appears as a natural addition, an organic growth in the heart of the existing tissue. The first four floors are each taken up by one typically laid out apartment, enjoying two generous terraces to the South and to the West. The topmost levels are occupied by a spectacular duplex, with a panoramic terrace.

Lotul de 552 metri p`tra]i pe care este amplasat actualul imobil era ocupat de o cl`dire P+1 de factur` neo-româneasc` a c`rei valoare cultural` se concentra în partea vizibil` din spa]iul public. În zona cur]ii îns` construc]ia pre-existent` s-a dovedit una de factur` modest`. Tema de proiectare a solicitat o valorificare cât mai atent` a parcelei, în parametrii destul de stric]i impu[i de Direc]ia Monumentelor Istorice [i de studiul istoric întocmit în prealabil. Astfel s-a ajuns la solu]ia prezerv`rii fa]adelor [i la configurarea volumetric` a noului proiect în retrageri succesive, atât de la strad`, cât [i pe în`l]ime, pentru a p`stra intact „cadrul” vizual cu care zona era deja obi[nuit`. Noul imobil de locuin]e joac` în mod deliberat rol de fundal pentru aceste fa]ade istoric [i cultural valoroase, preluând raportul plin-gol, dimensiunile [i pozi]iile ferestrelor anterioare lui în partea de extindere. Construc]ia ]ine seama de context [i din alt punct de vedere: c`r`mida aparent` aplicat` ca accent pe noul volum este o referin]` vizual` explicit` la alt reper construit al zonei – Biserica Anglican`. Totu[i, proiectul nu este o pasti[`, iar apartamentele r`spund nevoilor contemporane de locuire: zonele de living cu deschidere c`tre Gr`dina Icoanei sunt iluminate abundent prin mari suprafe]e vitrate, prin contrast cu fa]adele dinspre strad`. Având o suprafa]` desf`[urat` total` de 2 512 metri p`tra]i (incluzând subsolul [i terasele), aceast` cl`dire de locuin]e realizat` din cadre [i pere]i structurali din beton armat reprezint` un gest de modestie arhitectural`, \ns` unul perfect contemporan.

The 552 sqm lot where the new building is located was previously taken up by a one floor Traditional Romanian Revival style building, which appeared to be culturally valuable on the side facing the public space. However, in the area of the courtyard, this building had proven itself to be rather lacking. The design brief asked for the architect to take full advantage of the lot, while carefully respecting the strict regulations imposed by the Directorate of Historical Monuments and the previously compiled historical study. Thus, the architect chose to keep the façades, while designing a new volume that gradually retreats from the street and decreases in height in order to maintain a visual setting typical of the area. The new housing building deliberately sets itself into the background in order to emphasize the historically and culturally valuable façades. The extended volume “borrows” certain elements of these façades, such as the game of fulls and hollows and the dimensions and positioning of the windows. The building takes into account the existing context from more than one point of view. Thus, the exposed brickwork of the new volume visually alludes to another architectural landmark of the area – the Anglican Church. Despite all of this, the project is not a pastiche and the apartments address all the requirements related to contemporary living. The daytime areas, which open towards the Gr`dina Icoanei Park, are generously lit through large glazed surfaces, in contrast with the opaque street façades. Measuring a total 2,512 sqm (including the basement and the terraces), this housing building, whose framing and resistance walls are in steel concrete, presents itself as an exercise in architectural modesty, in a purely contemporary fashion.

De[i a avut ca punct de pornire un teren cu o geometrie [i orientare cardinal` dificile, proiectul a r`spuns \n mod inspirat provoc`rilor, oferind la final ora[ului una dintre cele mai frumoase cl`diri de locuin]e realizate \n ultimii ani, din care transpare bucuria din gestul edific`rii.

Located on a quiet street behind the large housing blocks on Titulescu Avenue, this Mediterranean style building completes the heterogeneous built tissue, made up of narrow, two to four level houses. Despite the fact that the starting point was a rather difficult site, both geometrically and geographically, the project rose up to the challenges, offering the city one of the most beautiful housing buildings of the last few years, and a testimony to the joy of constructing. The vertical circulation node, placed in the site’s centre of gravity, connects two different areas, both fully occupied by apartments. Seeking to establish a discreet dialogue with the vicinities, the building re-interprets several of their characteristics: proportions, the typology of the access ways, certain elements connecting the building to the outside space, as well as certain ways of emphasizing the site’s depth. The apartments oriented towards the back, designed on two levels (but eventually modified during the working stage), provide visual closure to the view from the street, yet maintain the transparence typical of the area’s tissue and hint at the presence of the small garden they conceal. Fully aware of the importance of simple, natural elements and seeking to provide the inhabitants with privacy and comfort, the architects have shown a great care for the lighting of the interiors. Thus, besides the large glazed areas, they have provided the building with a flexible shading system that may be adjusted according to the time of day, but also to suit the inhabitants’ mood and state of mind.

Amplasat \n zona de nord a Bucure[tiului, complexul de locuin]e Rovere este format din dou` volume identice, cu un regim de \n`l]ime P+3, separate de un spa]iu de socializare care este dominat de o generoas` piscin` \n aer liber. |nc` de la distan]`, acestea se remarc` prin aspectul ludic [i totu[i elegant al fa]adelor, constând \ntr-un joc controlat de \ncadraturi rectangulare, finisate \n alb [i tonuri de cafeniu [i bej. Acest joc \[i atinge punctul culminant pe laturile adiacente zonei de socializare, unde cele dou` cl`diri creeaz` iluzia a dou` piese de puzzle care au fost separate. Dincolo de comunicarea ce se produce la nivel vizual, corpurile sunt de asemenea conectate la nivel subteran, printr-un spa]iu general unde au fost amenajate parc`rile [i zonele tehnice. |n cazul fiec`rei cl`diri, principala cale de acces este marcat` de un portic inten]ionat incomplet, ce trimite \n mod ironic (f`r` mali]iozitate) la imaginea idilic` a locuin]elor dintr-un sat alpin. Aspectul inovator [i \ndr`zne] al exteriorului se traduce la interior printr-o serie de spa]ii generoase, cu un design unic [i un grad de confort ridicat. Fiecare volum cuprinde 35 de apartamente de dou` pân` la patru camere, fiecare cu propria identitate, ultimul nivel fiind rezervat unui apartament special, de tip penthouse. Intimitatea locatarilor a fost una dintre preocup`rile principale ale arhitec]ilor, de aceea pentru finisaje au fost alese materiale cu bune propriet`]i de izolare fonic` [i termic`. Niciun detaliu nu a fost l`sat la voia \ntâmpl`rii, de la tonurile calde ale parchetului din lemn natural pân` la b`ile sofisticate, amenajate \ntr-un autentic stil italian.

Located in the Northern area of Bucharest, the Rovere housing complex is made up of two identical three-floor volumes, separated by a socializing space occupied by a generous open air swimming pool. Even from a distance, the buildings stand out through the playful, yet elegant aspect of the façades, consisting in a controlled game of rectangular frames, finished in off-white and shades of brown and beige. This game culminates on the sides facing the socializing area, where the two buildings create the illusion of two puzzle pieces that have been taken apart. Apart from this visual level connection, the volumes also communicate through a shared basement, where the parking spaces and the technical areas are located. For each building, the main access way is marked by an intentionally incomplete portico, alluding ironically (but not maliciously) to the idyllic image of rural Alpine houses. The exterior’s innovative and daring look translates on the inside through a series of generous spaces with a unique design and high comfort levels. Thus, each volume hosts 35 apartments, each with its own identity, containing two to four rooms, the topmost level being fully occupied by a luxury penthouse apartment. The inhabitants’ privacy was one of the architects’ main concerns and this is the reason why the materials chosen for finishing have excellent insulation and soundproofing properties. As for the interior design, every single detail has been carefully thought of, from the warm tones of the natural wood parquet to the sophisticated, Italian style bathrooms.

Imobil reziden]ial \n Bra[ov Housing Building in Bra[ov

Amplasat la limita centrului istoric al Bra[ovului, \ntr-o arie cu caracter discontinuu \n ciuda statutului de zon` protejat`, acest imobil ad`poste[te opt apartamente, distribuite câte dou` pe nivel. }inând cont [i de nevoia de a exploata la maximum terenul existent, arhitec]ii au valorificat aspectele pozitive ale sitului, \n special peisajul [i perspectiva; a rezultat astfel un bloc compact, trapezoidal \n plan, ce \mprumut` amprenta sitului. Argumentul compozi]ional principal \l constituie jocul simetric-asimetric al golurilor ultimilor patru etaje, cuprinse \ntr-un cadru accentuat de consola la strad`. Volumul arhitectural destul de sobru este a[ezat pe un soclu de piatr`, ce pune \n rela]ie construc]ia cu terenul \n pant`, iar singurul decupaj \n silueta compact` este realizat la col]ul din dreapta de la nivelul parterului, pentru a accentua zona de acces \n cl`dire [i pentru a sublinia dialogul interior-exterior. Forma curat` [i simpl` a construc]iei este \mbog`]it` prin contrastul [i \ntrep`trunderea materialelor, texturilor [i culorilor. Mai mult, o serie de detalii au fost concepute special pentru a pune \n valoare priveli[tea deosebit`: ferestrele nu au parapet, iar balustrada este din sticl`, oferind o deschidere [i mai mare c`tre peisaj. La ultimele niveluri ale imobilului este amplasat un loft cu o structur` gândit` pe vertical`: pe lâng` golurile generoase, care ofer` o perspectiv` ampl` asupra centrului vechi, spa]iile interioare beneficiaz` de mult` lumin` zenital`, care p`trunde, gra]ie pardoselii de sticl`, pân` la nivelul inferior.

Located at the outer limits of Bra[ov’s historical centre, in a rather discontinuous context – despite the area’s protected status – this building contains a total of eight apartments, two on each level. Keeping in mind the need to make the most of the available lot, the architects have worked on its positive aspects, the landscape and views especially. The result was a compact building, defined by a trapeze shape, which covers the footprint of the site. The main compositional motif lies in the play on symmetry and asymmetry made up by the hollows on the top four levels, contained in a frame accentuated by the street-facing cantilever. The volume itself is defined by a stern aesthetic and is placed on a stone base, establishing a dialogue between the building and the sloping field. The only discontinuity in the otherwise compact silhouette is to be found on the right hand corner of the ground floor level, serving to emphasize the access area, as well as the dialogue between inside and outside. The clear and simple shape of the building is enriched by the contrast and overlapping of materials, textures and colours. Furthermore, several details have been thought out in order to emphasize the unique view: the windows have no parapets and the railing is in glass, offering a greater opening towards the landscape. The building’s topmost levels host a loft whose structure has been laid out vertically. Besides the generous hollow areas, offering an ample perspective on the city’s historical centre, the interiors benefit from natural light, which, thanks to the glass floor, reaches down to the lower level.

Imobil de locuin]e pe strada C`derea Bastiliei Housing Building on C`derea Bastiliei Street

Proiectul a pornit de la un teren dificil – 8,4 m x 52 m, cu dou` inflexiuni pe latura lung` [i calcan pe cea sudic`, provocarea fiind dublat` de o serie de restric]ii urbanistice care au impus un partiu cu l`]imea de 6,50 m. Pentru a atenua lungimea cl`dirii rezultate, fa]ada de nord a fost dinamizat` cu ajutorul unor ferestre dispuse aparent aleatoriu; \n spatele acestei false dezordini exist` \ns` modul`ri atente [i o corelare sincer`, logic` între gol [i func]iunea din spatele lui. Pentru finisare au fost preferate materialele calde: lemnul [i zugr`veala \n nuan]e deschise, asociate sticlei vopsite în maro \nchis, transparent` sau mat`. Repartizarea apartamentelor pe planul alungit fiind esen]ial`, accesul în imobil se face prin zona de mijloc; parc`rile au fost rezolvate la nivelul solului, \n timp ce la subsol se afl` spa]iile tehnice [i boxe de depozitare pentru locatari. Pavimentul este tratat \ntr-o compozi]ie de piatr` cubic`, granit, lemn [i pavele. În suprafa]a de 1 200 mp, repartizat` pe 6 niveluri, au fost concepute apartamente cu partiuri diferite: dou` duplexuri orientate spre strad`, dou` spre zona de curte din spatele terenului [i câte un apartament pe nivel la etajele 5 [i 6, u[or retrase. Pentru a ob]ine un anumit confort acustic, unele duplexuri au fost „r`sturnate”, rezultând suprapunerea zonelor de noapte. Toate spa]iile sanitare [i buc`t`riile beneficiaz` de ventila]ie [i lumin` natural`, iar zona de zi [i majoritatea dormitoarelor au deschidere spre teras`, profitând de dubla orientare a fiec`rui apartament.

The project was built on a challenging, 8.4 m x 52 m site, featuring two inflexions on its long side and bordered by a blind wall on its Southern site. The challenge was doubled by several urban restrictions that imposed the width of 6.5 m for the design. In order to counterbalance the length of the resulting building, the Northern façade features several randomly displayed windows, as a dynamic element. However, this apparent disorder was the result of careful modulation and a sincere, logical correlation between every hollow area and the function behind it. The architects chose warm materials for the finishes: wood and light-coloured paint, combined with glass, both transparent and opaque and painted dark brown. Due to the distribution of the apartments along the elongated plan, the access inside the building is done through the central area. The parking spaces are located at ground level, while the basement is occupied by technical spaces and storage boxes to be used by the inhabitants. The outside paving was done in square stone, granite, wood and stone slabs. The six levels, measuring a total of 1 200 sqm, contain apartments in various layouts: two duplexes facing the street, with two additional ones facing the back yard, as well as one apartment on each of the slightly retreating top levels. In order to ensure the inhabitants’ acoustic comfort, some of the duplexes were “turned upside-down”, resulting in the superposition of the night time areas. The bathrooms and kitchens are all naturally aired and lit, while the daytime and most of the night time areas open towards the terrace, thus taking advantage of each apartment’s double orientation.

With two lateral blind walls, this housing building currently appears as a stand alone object, and thus, an exceptional one. Shortly, it will be integrated within a continuous front of row buildings. The architecture project has therefore taken into account this upcoming development, which will become the rule of the area. The building’s two opaque sides were designed right from the start as buffer areas in relation to the soon to be built structures adjacent to the property limits. Although not very generous in size, the layout was designed to correspond to a contemporary lifestyle (the beneficiaries being either singles or young couples). The architects made the most of the daytime areas, to the detriment of the technical spaces, which were reduced to the strictly necessary. The main rooms are spacious, generously glazed on their full height and opening towards a terrace. Each of the six inhabitable levels is occupied by a two room apartment, with two terraces oriented in the opposite direction. As a rule, one of the terraces is adjacent to the kitchen and the other to the living room. However, on the vertical, this unique layout varies in order to create a play of full and hollow on the façade, which changes from one level to the other. The lack of space made the design of an interior courtyard quite impossible, the ground level being fully taken up by the building’s imprint and the parking spaces. Thus, the architects moved the external socializing space entirely on the terrace above the topmost level. Provided with a pergola, this space may host summer parties but, most of all, it helps open the perspective on the surroundings.

Imobil de locuin]e Badiu Badiu Housing Building

Situat \ntr-o zon` eterogen` din punct de vedere al stilurilor arhitecturale, acest imobil de locuin]e a fost conceput în jurul ideii de „minimal”. Designul industrial confer` cl`dirii un aspect cât se poate de contemporan – un loft „artificial” ce nu recupereaz` o structur` veche, fiind proiectat de la început astfel. Cele cinci apartamente din cl`dire se dezvolt` în limitele parcelei înguste (8 m x 25 m), fiecare pe câte un nivel. Pentru a câ[tiga spa]iu util locuibil, palierele de etaj au fost eliminate, solu]ia aleas` de arhitec]i pentru circula]ia pe vertical` fiind una mai pu]in întâlnit` la noi: scar` exterioar` de evacuare [i lift hidraulic cu deschidere direct` în fiecare apartament. Partiul este simplu, interioarele libere amintind de spa]iile specifice halelor. Mai mult, finisajele se reduc la parchet/deck (pentru terase), gresie, faian]` [i r`[in` epoxidic` (b`i), într-o gam` cromatic` compus` din nuan]e de maro, în contrast cu albul predominant. Tâmpl`ria are în`l]imea maxim` admis`, înlesnind comunicarea vizual` cu vecin`t`]ile. La exterior, materialele [i culoarea au un impact vizual puternic: scara metalic` este vopsit` \n albastru (culoare primar` folosit` \n rafin`rii), clincherul în complementara lui – orange; ultimul etaj este placat cu tabl` ondulat` alb`, iar pl`cile sunt exprimate pe fa]ad` cu ajutorul unor profile de tabl` îndoit` gri. Texturile sunt completate de tabla tras` ce protejeaz` scara, de balustradele din ]eav` p`trat` grunduit` [i de gardul de împrejmuire a propriet`]ii care, de[i pare zidit, ascunde un beton aparent bine cofrat.

Located within an architecturally heterogeneous area, this housing building was designed following the principles of minimalism. The industrial aesthetic lends a contemporary look to the structure, which thus makes up an artificial loft that was designed to appear as if recovering an old structure. The five apartments contained within the building each occupy one level, within the full limits of the narrow 8 m x 25 m site. In order to expand the inhabitable space, the floor landings have been eliminated, the architects opting for a vertical circulation solution that is rather uncommon for Romania: an external evacuation staircase and a hydraulic elevator which opens directly inside every apartment. The interior space design is quite simple, the spacious rooms being reminiscent of industrial halls. Furthermore, the finishes are minimal: parquet (for the terraces), sandstone, earthenware and epoxidic resin (for the bathrooms), all in shades of brown, contrasting with the predominantly white interiors. The carpentry elements rise to the maximum allowed height, in order to facilitate the visual connection with the surroundings. The materials and colours chosen for finishing the exteriors offer a strong visual impact: the metallic staircase is painted blue (this being a primary colour, as well as the one predominantly used in refineries), and the clincher in its complementary colour – orange. The topmost floor is coated in white corrugated iron, the plaques being emphasized by contours in folded gray plate sheets. The texture palette is completed by the steel plate blind covering the staircase, the rough coated square pipes that make up the banisters and the fence surrounding the lot. The latter, while appearing to be in masonry, is actually made up of exposed concrete.

Imobil de locuin]e pe strada Sirenelor Housing Building on Sirenelor Street

Ap`rut ca interven]ie nou` într-un fond constituit anterior, imobilul de pe strada Sirenelor nu neglijeaz` niciuna dintre caracteristicile contextului. Volumul preia în`l]imea predominant` P+8, dar se retrage cu trei niveluri, adresându-se prin aceasta construc]iilor de gabarit mai mic ce alc`tuiesc ]esutul urban al zonei. Cota cur]ii de acces este supraîn`l]at` cu câteva trepte fa]` de nivelul trotuarului, intr`rile fiind astfel marcate vizibil. Exist` dou` nuclee de circula]ie vertical` ce deservesc apartamentele, iar aleea ce le leag` la exterior este bordat` de un spa]iu plantat, al`turi de care alveolele amenajate func]ioneaz` ca o zon` de discu]ii în aer liber. Cel de-al doilea loc de popas, de asemenea un spa]iu plantat, are un caracter mai intim, fiind amplasat în spatele cl`dirii, spre limita nordic` a incintei. Identitatea fiec`ruia dintre cele 34 de apartamente este diferit`, iar acest lucru este exprimat foarte clar la exterior, printr-un joc interesant de goluri sculptate în planul fa]adei. Proiectul se distan]eaz` astfel conceptual de ideea cutiilor de locuit identice pe din`untru [i dezolante pe dinafar`, propunând un scenariu în care tocmai varietatea este s`rb`torit`. Urmând o schem` de partiu diferit` pentru fiecare nivel în parte, volumul construit al imobilului ofer` ora[ului o imagine pe gustul acestuia, un colaj de plinuri [i goluri, de loggii sau balcoane, de spa]ii interioare intime [i zone extrovertite, legate îns` într-o compozi]ie coerent` [i, de fapt, controlat`.

Designed in order to bring a touch of the new within an existing front, the building on Sirenelor Street takes all of the features of its context into account. At its highest point, the volume takes on the predominant eight floor height of its surroundings, and then descends three levels, in order to relate to the smaller buildings existing within the area’s urban tissue. The access courtyard is elevated in relation to the sidewalk level, thus visibly marking the points of entrance. The apartments are accessible through two vertical circulation knots, whereas the corridors connecting them are flanked by a strip of green. In this space, a series of cells function as an open air socializing area. The building also features a second socializing area, green in its turn, which is more private, being placed behind the volume, towards the northern limit of the premise. Each of the 34 apartments boasts an individual identity, a feature clearly stated on the outside, through a charming game of hollow areas dug inside the façade. The project thus distances itself at a conceptual level from the typical “inhabitable boxes”, with identical interiors and desolate exteriors, setting forth a scenario that celebrates variety. Boasting a different layout scheme on each level, the building offers the city a view to be enjoyed, a collage of full and hollow, of loggias and terraces, of cozy interiors and open areas, all of them connected within a coherent, and quite controlled, composition.

Amplasarea acestor elemente punctuale pe planul fa]adei nu este aceea[i de sus pân` jos, iar golurile vitrate sunt decalate de la ritmul caracteristic, ob]inându-se astfel o imagine diferit` a fa]adelor scurte fa]` de cea de-a treia eleva]ie accesibil`.

Placed on a 556 sqm site, this six-floor housing building is tangent to the neighbouring lot and features several retreats from the street level, the lateral limits and the back of the site, as the architect sought not to interfere with the existing context. The building’s outside expression follows the logic of the internal organization. Within a layout featuring two flats on each level (the topmost floor being occupied by a single large apartment), the bedrooms are placed on the building’s short sides, opening up to their surroundings through a balcony measuring 2.5 m in depth and designed as a plexiglass encasement. The distribution of these punctual elements on the façade is not the same on the full height of the building, as the glazed hollow areas don’t follow a standard rhythm. This allowed for the creation of a visual separation of the smaller façades from the third accessible elevation. The long side, containing the daytime areas (living room, kitchen, dining room, studio) closely follows the interwar style, perfectly rectangular, line of strip windows marked by exposed jambs. As mentioned before, except for the top floor, each level houses two apartments, one containing three rooms and the other, four rooms. Thus, the grouping of the daytime, night time and technical areas was done based on a logical scheme. For instance, the bathrooms were grouped towards the building’s central area, part of them benefiting from natural ventilation through the courtyard adjoining the blind wall, the same courtyard that serves to light up the stairwell.

Zona dintre cele trei corpuri de cl`dire este plantat` cu arbu[ti [i tufe [i par]ial pavat` cu pietri[, asemenea aleilor din parcurile de alt`dat`, sunetul pl`cut al pietrelor la fiecare pas invitând la o traversare lent` [i marcând la nivel subliminal intrarea \ntr-un spa]iu al destinderii. Jocul alb de plinuri [i goluri care nu scoate \n eviden]` niciun volum dominant [i nicio fa]ad` principal`, punctat pe alocuri de suprafe]e dinamice de un verde crud, este un alt factor de echilibru pentru ansamblu; l`sând la o parte arogan]a proprie cl`dirilor urbane ce \ncearc` prin orice mijloace s` se fac` remarcate, arhitectura apartamentelor de vacan]` invit` la intimitate [i relaxare, f`r` a izola cl`direa de mediul ei, dar [i f`r` a o expune excesiv.

This holiday housing building, located in Neptun, elegantly contradicts the principles of real estate investors and functionalist architecture teachings, by using simple means to create a fluid, pleasant inside and outside space, designed solely to provide its occupants with comfort. The architectural discourse is clear and simple, yet powerful, making the most of the vegetation growing on the site. Thus, the volumes, each with its own identity, yet connected to the others through passageways, closely follow the position of the tall trees, and thus the right angle turns into a less aggressive oblique angle. The nonconformist, relaxing mood is emphasized through the introduction of an open central courtyard and through the presence, on the first floor, of an uninhibited pool, facing the street crossing. The area between the three volumes is planted with shrubs and bushes and partially paved with rubble, reminiscent of the alleyways in the parks of bygone ages. The pleasant sound of stone under foot invites people to take their time and subliminally marks the entrance to a space of leisure. The game of full and hollow, done in white, and marked, here and there, by dynamic fresh green surfaces, doesn’t bring out any dominating volume or main façade, yet stands out as one of the factors from which balance ensues. Casting aside the arrogance typical of urban buildings that try to stand out through any means, the architecture of the holiday apartments is inviting, intimate and relaxing, without isolating the building from its environment or overly exposing it.

Din ce \n ce mai mul]i oameni redescoper` farmecul locuirii urbane, pe \n`l]ime, iar ceea ce \i atrage sunt tocmai proiectele mai flexibile, mai individualizate [i orientate c`tre client. Noul album din seria igloo best v` prezint` 19 astfel de proiecte, selectate ]inând totodat` cont de grija pentru coeren]a ansamblului [i inserarea \n context [i pentru inova]ie \n raport cu cerin]ele contemporane de locuire. Fie c` stabilesc repere puternice, de calitate, \n zone (sub)urbane controversate, fie c` recupereaz` [i reinterpreteaz` cu inspira]ie un anumit tip de ]esut urban sau pur [i simplu ofer` alte repere de confort \n compara]ie cu blocul comunist – „mo[tenirea” la care ne raport`m cu to]ii, con[tient sau nu, aceste noi proiecte ilustreaz` faptul c` locuirea colectiv` poate \nsemna confort [i individualitate, ba chiar, câteodat`, convie]uire cu natura. More and more people are starting to rediscover the charm of vertical urban living, being attracted by projects that are more flexible, individual and client-oriented. The latest album in the igloo best series presents 19 such projects, whose selection has taken into account the care for the coherence of the whole and its insertion into the given context, as well as the degree of innovation in relation to contemporary living requirements. Whether they establish powerful, quality landmarks in controversial (sub)urban areas, or they recover and inspiredly reinterpret a certain type of urban tissue, or they simply offer an alternative of comfort in relation to the communist block – the “inheritance” we all relate to, whether we realize it or not – these new projects illustrate the fact that collective housing can mean comfort and individuality, and sometimes even communion with nature.
