The north of Bucharest city is well known to host The Big Office Developments buildings we all heard about and came across to. But what about the project that was built on the junction of Stefan Cel Mare and Tunari street?
But also the winner @ CIJ Awards Romania 2016 for the “The Best Small Office Development of the Year”, Stefan Cel Mare building is on everyone’s lips, a new landmark in its area due to its boutique characteristic.
This is the first property developed by Forte Partners, a building with a total gross area of 8000 sqm, with Class A office finishes and construction materials.
Forte’s partners in this project are the architects Lauster & Radu and the general constructor ACMS-GC.
The need for a raised access floor system capable to provide flexible fit-out (anti-static) and access to the plumbing and electrical wiring was met by Decor Floor with products from CBI Europe.
The selected CBM/S panel, fully encapsulated with galvanized steel, has a Class A1 fire reaction, which makes it incombustible. The panel has reinforced edges, engineered to add strength and durability to the building structure. Decor Floor delivered and installed CBI Europe’s Technical Raised Access Floor Systems by a work-flow of three floors per month.
Apa Nova, chose to move its employees in Stefan Cel Mare building, on a total surface of 3.200 sqm. The architectural design was conceived by arh. Adela ANTONIU, arh. Șerban ANTONIU, arh. Mădălina URAM / Arhilab. The team experienced the idea of reconnection with nature.
Each of the 4 floors corresponds to a particular department and is represented by the chosen materials, chromatic, textures, etc. of a specific natural element: vegetable, earth, stone and wood.
The flooring played an important role, among the furniture and fit-out provided by Techo Romania.
The exceptionally hardwearing and highly functional collection Tempra by Desso was chosen by the architects to play in their concept. A smart looking tile, with a dense low- level loop pile and strong colour options, it provides just the right amount of style to inspire busy commercial offices.
