Running on an average height for the northern cornice of Bucharest, the two bodies with various apartments from One Herastrau Park building are made up aroud an empty space - a semi-public interior plaza. The plaza unifies, integrates and delineates the main-door access to the dwellings and the commercial areas on the ground floor, placing the construction in the urban landscape, permeating its base.
The composition achieved by the X Architecture team relies on a strong code of truth (as Ecco says) of the architect profession, namely that collective dwellings are a contemporary custom of the city structure. A problematic theme, a subject that calls for a critical reaction.
