Romanian architects Ion Popusoi and Bogdan Preda created a beautiful and compact, modern residential loft complex called Cetatuia Loft, located in Brasov, Romania. The dwelling site is situated on Cetatuia Street, at the edge of the historical center of the town, with an amazing panoramic view over the mountains and historical center of the city.  Three storey house covering 1,500 square meters, covered by the maximum amount of natural daylight to penetrate through the large windows (including skylights) and is not a blockage, by using a large number of structural elements of the interior glass. The railings were almost dematerialised  (invisible)  by transparent glass and windows with PVC frames; thus non-essential elements that altered the clear perception of space were eliminated as much as possible.  Without these horizontal and vertical glazed surfaces the house would have lost a very important spatial dimension and the relationship between the interior and the landscape. It is a strong  and dynamic relationships with the surrounding landscape and its own interior elements.
