The project brief asked for the transformation and extension of an existing single floor guesthouse on a 4000 sqm property in Costinesti, Romania, next to a public beach of the Black Sea.
Our response was to keep the existing reinforced concrete structure, completely remodel the ground floor, and build another on top of it, in order to house the required 5 guest bedrooms. A common living / dining room and a large kitchen on the ground floor all have access to a covered terrace facing East.
Local materials and technologies are employed: a typical shell stone, and whitewashed reclaimed bricks for the facades, a low pitched roof is covered in clay roof tiles.
