HOUSE IN SIBIU
A Residence in Sibiu, Romania
The House in Sibiu started with a client from India, married with a Romanian woman, both living in Dubai, wanting to build a residence for their family of 2 children, on the outskirts of the historic city of Sibiu, in central Romania. Even though it was a remote service, with some physical limitations, the project design process and the relationship with the clients were extremely enjoyable.
We developed the first phases of the Architecture Project on a plot with a privileged view of the Făgăraş Mountains. The importance of this view became the starting point of the project, which had to reconcile large windows with the need for internal heating of the house during winter.
Also, in favor of the appreciation of the view, the façade assumes different angulations, creating a set of volumes that refer to the peaks seen in the horizon. The extensive program includes 2 bedrooms, 2 suites, a library, home cinema, playroom, office, living room, dining room, kitchen, wine cellar, a gaming room, and an external common area. Arranged on 2 floors and a basement, all these spaces surround the split level living room, the heart of the house.
