The project consists in the reinforcement,restoration ,modernisation and reconsideration of an existing building, in the central area of Bucharest, in one of the most interesting areas of the city, on Matei Millo street, nr. 7.
The construction is built on a ground of 517,00 sqm and is private property.It has a height of underground, ground floor, 4 levels and attic .Its total built surface is about 2,500 sqm.
The site is in the central area of the city of Bucharest, next to Calea Victoriei,next to the Palace of Telephones and the former National Theatre. It is in the protected area “Brezoianu”.
At the end of thr XIX -th century and the beginning of thr XX -th, there was one of the most beloved places in Bucharest- the” Oteteleseanu Garden” – maybe the most special place for entertainment at that time, including a theatre- in open air and a well known restaurant where people gathered to talk and have a good meal, to drink a good glass of wine or a beer. The building was built probably in the years 1923-1924 and was known as “The Building for the Retail Office of the Paper Factory”.
We wanted to bring back the spirit of the Oteteleseanu Garden , but in a special way, according to the needs and spirit of the society of today and perhaps of tomorrow – with interesting spaces for retail and small coffee shops, cafeteria and a very interesting inner yard. This one permits to extend these spaces also in the underground as it is shown in our drawings.
The building needs to be reinforced , restored,modernized
The upper levels will be occupied by appartements which will be booked for a longer or shorter time, in a hotelier regime. There are several stages of confort.
Towards this interior garden we proposed a general balcony with a special fluid geometry permitting people to meet also outside their rooms or appartements . The atrium can be used also for special cultural and social events. After being reinforced and restored, the facades will be artistically lightened by night. In that way, the building will become an interesting and attractive element of the zone.
The building has now an interesting perspective from Calea Victoriei. It is like a jewel in the secondary plan between the Palace of Telephones and the new Hotel built on the place of the ancient National Theatre.
Our aim is to reintroduce the building in the active life of the city, in harmony with the urban environment and it’s history , even if it is not listed as a patrimony building.
