Renovare si extindere imobil / Renewal and extension of an old structure
Localizare: Bucuresti, Calea Mosilor
Dupa evacuarile fortate din perioada comunista, Ceausescu a populat majoritatea imobilelor din centrele istorice ale oraselor romanesti cu populatie rroma, de factura nomada. Drept consecinta, foarte multe imobile istorice au fost, in scurt timp, devastate datorita incapacitatii noilor utilizatori de a se adapta la un stil de viata complet diferit de cel pe care il avusesera pana atunci in mod firesc.
Necesitatea recuperarii acestor imobile este iminenta. Propunerea de fata vizeza recuperarea fatadei stradale istorice a imobilului, refacerea curtii cu volume noi si extinderea cu cateva volume placate in tabla de zinc. S-a incercat stabilirea unui dialog contemporan cu arhitectura istorica, cat si a unui alt dialog, subtil, cu contextul general si devastat al zonei istorice.

After the forced evacuations of the historical buildings during the communist regime, Ceausescu populated the major part of the historical centers of the Romanian cities with Romany nomad people. Thus, a lot of historical buildings have been shortly almost destroyed, due to the incapacity of the new inhabitants to maintain such buildings and adapt suddenly to a new and completely different lifestyle.
The necessity of recovering these buildings is imminent. This proposal regards such an example of a building whose street facade was recovered, as the courtyard was completely reconstructed. The 2 floors that have been added are formed by several zinc-clad volumes. The challenge was to establish a contemporary dialogue with the old architecture, as well as to set another more subtle dialogue with the general derelict context of the neighboring buildings.
