Loft architecture office in Timişoara, Romania

The Andreescu & Gaivoronschi architecture office is located in the historic center of Timişoara, Romania. The company is known for designing the most important business park outside of Bucharest, the capital city of Romania, the City Business Center complex. The company’s headquarter is actually composed of two apartments that have been unified and a part of the mansard or loft has also been occupied. The 11 architects working there wanted their own headquarter as opposed to a rented space because it provides more stability and a personalized image.
