Ventilatorul Master Plan Bucharest

Urban Planning



Ventilatorul Limited Competition, First Prize, Bucharest, Romania

This project distributes nine 12 story residential buildings in a configuration that acknowledges challenges raised by the site and the program. These are the location of the majority of the land 7 meters below the level of the bordering streets, the phasing requirements, and the high noise level brought by the adjoining thoroughfares. The location of the buildings towards the center of the site, allows the distribution of the parking garage on the perimeter, under a landscaped berm that mediates the elevation difference between the level of the streets and the principal section of the site. This strategy permits the setting of the buildings in a natural park, where can be planted large trees in the undisturbed soil that covers the central section of the plot.
