The E + E House is a lovely, modern residence designed by. Ene + Ene architecture In Romania. This 3,000 square meter single story home is surrounded by lush modern landscaping that creates the great backdrop for the inside view.
“Imagine a house the way you want it” was the task of the Dumbrava Vlăsiei architectural competition, in which we were invited to participate. The only restrictions were local city regulations and the budget restrict. For an architect, this may be the moment he dreamed of, but when he finally gets through it, he realizes that the lack of normal architectural impositions can be a deceptive trap. The lack of spatial, morphological, historical or cultural symbols that characterize interventions in a completely modern neighborhood at the zero point of their existence is sometimes a major obstacle to the initiation and development of the creative process inherent in architecture. Consequently, the lack of boundaries leads to self-censorship, the conscious development of a personal set of values.
Dumbrava Vlăsiei sees an unusual residential area for genuine estate developments in Romania. In less than an hour, Dumbrava Vlăsiei from Bucharest, surrounded by forest, with an interesting urban design, with its winding streets and green public spaces of many different shapes and sizes, is gradually becoming a private place and this is already evident. has been brought up to date. In the heart of the modern district is an extraordinarily large and complex public park. During the project phase, the elements that make up the special equipment, street furniture, highways, sidewalks and street lighting are taken into account and used with the greatest care.
The first idea was to develop a house on a single level that would be more than a visual connection with its courtyard. Each room has access to the outside, but has a discreet relationship to the street facade. A linear spatial development perpendicular to the street, a series of spatial sequences that are calibrated to the functional requirements assigned in each case. In order to open up interior spaces as much as possible, the rooms are separated by functional walls that always contain the same thickness of furniture and equipment, from cupboards to shelves to worktops.
Two outside courtyards distort the linearity of the house, one reports access, the other more generous in relation to the kitchen and dining room. The house is divided into two parts that border the street and are designed for daily life, which is characterized by spatial fluidity. The night area facing the opposite side offers privacy. One possible clue was what was a morphological feature of the rural area in question and, despite its apparent simplicity, a spatial potential that is still underutilized in contemporary local architecture and is sometimes dismissively referred to as the "wagon house".
