Twisteddot as Architects

The present architectural complex combines a series of elements which best describe a bookstore. The concept which generated this project it’s related with two very important aspects: the buildings destination and the host area used for the construction of the complex, a specail area of Bucharest with a rich history. The Lipscani Street was the first street mentioned in the historical documents, in 1589, at that time known as „The big Street next to the Mansion House”. The Street and its soroundings were known as beeing used most by romanian, greek, bulgarian, serbian and armenian traders who were selling in their shops goods brought from Leipzig. Regarding the spaces of the building, these have a vertical distribution, which was done as folows: the ground floor is intended for a bookstore, three coffee houses and a large courtyard used for expositions and artistic manifestations; the first floor is an extensions of the ground floor and here we can find two bookstores and two coffee shops; the third floor holds a conference room and a large exhibition area; the fourth floor contains the library and multiple individual study rooms.
