The location is part of a former industrial area (“Intreprinderea 6 Martie”) which underwent a functional conversion process. The potential of this space to be transformed into a coherent urban complex is supported both by the great size of the lot and by the opportunity to connect to the well-defined tissue of the central area.

The complex is made of two main volumes: a vertical and a horizontal volume. The positioning of the vertical volume, retracted from the corner of the intersection, creates the space necessary for developing a square-like public space, supported by the public functions located at the ground-floor level. If the vertical volume is intended as a landmark defining the newly created urban space, the horizontal volume, through its moderate scale, becomes a visual background for this space.
