When I first saw this house on peripheralz.ro, I felt it represents a kind of rebellion against tradition because it definitely stands out in the common architectural landscape from Romania, a South-Eastern, ex-communist European country. The project of the house was realized by architect Adrian Ianchis from Peripheral Z Studio and it was awarded in 2011 in a regional competition at the category ‘Buildings with less than 1000sqm built area’, and the interior design was created by Diana Popescu. As you can easily notice, the building relies on modern, clean lines, it lacks ornamentation and it uses  man-made materials such as metal and concrete. The owners enjoy a wooden terrace outside and a small garden – the delightful ‘accessory’ we all need to escape urban anxiety.
