Bulevardul Aviatorilor, București, Romania - Build completed in 2017

When history meets future - striking combination of old and new

Knauf Aquapanel GmbH & Co. KG as Manufacturers

In central Bucharest a historic villa was refurbished and a modern office building constructed directly adjacent. Featuring a flowing form with a projecting roof, the building needed robust yet lightweight exterior ceilings.


“The defining element of Aviatorilor 8 is the architectural design and technical solutions, considered to be avant-garde in style for an office building. This is what we aimed for.”

Lori Collin, Office Executive, NEPI 


The new construction consists of three floors of offices and the ground floor, which is offered to the city for cultural activities. The space between the new façade and the villa is partly covered by a projecting roof that mirrors the swaying curves, creating a protected area underneath it.


“The design elements concluding the building bring a comfort and elegance degree worthy of the future. The distinctive, large and double-curved façade embellishes this project in noblesse, art, grandeur and heights that have not been reached in Romania, when it comes to office buildings.”

Lori Collin, Office Executive, NEPI 


For the construction of all exterior ceilings the architects chose AQUAPANEL® Cement Board SkyLite, because a highly robust and yet lightweight solution was desired. Its complete resistance to water, mould or mildew qualified the material as well as its easy handling, especially important for the over-head working process. With the help of the cement boards, the fascinating form of this office building could be completed – and a new frame for the historic Oromolu Villa was established.
