The beneficiary’s receptiveness towards our proposals led to a beautiful and fast cooperation. The time spent on site was a real pleasure.”, added Arch. Ana-Maria Tudor, founder of Arhitecturall.
At the BigSee Interior Design Awards competition, the winner of each category is selected based on the following criteria: innovation, smart design, originality, sustainability, cultural and social awareness, functionality, creative strength, passion, and business excellence in the South Eastern Europe region.
The vision for the interior design project for the RPHI offices in Bucharest was to step out of our comfort zone and classical design patterns and create a new emblematic space: “the heart of the company”. The space was designed to be representative of the entire SkyTower and the creativity it generates. The interior design project also makes the most of the abundant natural light which the building enjoys, by creating a fluid path using organic design.
The furniture chosen for the office area has curved shapes and can be adapted and rearranged according to numbers of people and preferences. This offers versatility, a certain dynamism and refinement, the space thus being used to its full potential, without loss of surface areas.
The BigSee Awards help to promote creative and original works in the SEE region. They systematically explore the creative and business potential of the region and uncover excellence in architecture, interior design, products, and fashion design.
