Project idea

The idea of the project is a pavilion suited for children located in a park near the center of Bucharest, the capital of Romania. The difficulty came from the vicinity of the park, Calea Victoria, which is a crowded and a very important boulevard of the city.

Project description

The area allocated to the project was a part of the park, the furthest from the boulevard and also 50 cm lower than the rest of the park. This slight difference in levels was an opportunity to exploit, given the fact that the idea I followed was a perfect integration of the insertion in the site, with zero perception over the construction. This premise also included a fine control over the perception of the site from both sides. Essentially, there were two worlds separated by an apparently invisible barrier: the world of adults, represented by the park- the protector of the second world- the world of children, with hidden places and endless fields, a space of freedom and secrets.

Technical information

The site is located in the East side of Nicolae Iorga park- on N, Iorga Street, Bucharest, Romania. The site has 2350 square meters. The pavilions consist of curved beams, distributed on 2 directions, made of cross-laminated timber (CLT), the walls are made of cob, to give space a more under earthy appearance. These structures are covered with earth because over them people see fields of grass, a cozy place to lay down.
