Design a home with no artificial lighting
We’d like to take the opportunity to introduce you to one of our Honorable mention winners for our "Caramel Shore Traveller Rooms" competition – Andra Panait, Oana Doina Trusca, Adelina Jinga and Teodora Rotea from Romania!
Honorable mention winners from Romania
We are Andra & Oana, two young architects from Bucharest, Romania. We teach architectural design at the Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urban Planning in Bucharest, Romania. We consider that the connection with students and their guidance inspires us in our professional activity, and at the same time it gives us great pleasure to have the opportunity to guide and shape new generations of future architects. We want as much as possible to keep a close connection with our students and to involve them in small architectural projects, that's why we collaborated with two students – Adelina & Teodora – in the realization of this competition.
We have two small architectural offices with 2–3 employees each. Our work is based on collective housing projects, interior design, landscape design, and urban planning studies. We like to combine architectural practice with research in the field of sustainable architecture.
For us, architecture is a tool for continuous learning and understanding/perception of the world.
We enjoy participating in architecture competitions because they are always a challenge and at the same time allow us to experiment and learn new things.
Architecture competitions are an interesting approach to architectural design and at the same time – a challenge. They add community value, ensure transparency in the procurement process, provide visibility, rely on professional expertise, and generate performance
