Copper House, Sibiu

Architect Radu Teacă made a Copper house in old Sibiu, Romania. An important aspect was to achive a harmonious integration of the building on its own site. Sibiu is an old city with a well-defined center of medieval buildings, therefore, the double pitched roof, the proportions of windows and the spaces between them were an attempt to adjust to existing archetypes. Another purpose was to obtain the essence of form on a minimalist key. In order to accomplish this, we used the same material for both roof and facade. It is understandable how the roof dictated the material for the vertical elevations as well. This is how the all-copper solution crystallised, copper being a material that ages beautifully and diversely.

Architect also is participating on MIES VAN DER ROHE AWARD – EUROPEAN UNION PRIZE FOR CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE 2015.

  3. Cum arata pe afara cu tabla aia stramba (finisaj zero, dar practic), si cum arata pe interior.
    Doua chestii nu vad calumea, incalzirea halei (caci casa nu vad cum ar fi) si sunetul, cred ca se aude ca in uzina daca dai cu aspiratorul, fiind spatiu deschis.
    De apreciat solutia de a avea lumina ziua peste tot.
    O casa potrivita pentru spiderman :)).
