AS THE FLOODS IN 2010 AFFECTED HUNDREDS OF HOUSEHOLDS, THE INVESTORS – HONORING THE CONCEPT OF ACTIVE INVOLVEMENT IN THE SUPPORT OF POVERTY-STRICKEN COMMUNITIES – IMMEDIATELY CAME UP WITH A SOLUTION. THEY FINANCED THE CONSTRUCTION OF EIGHT DWELLINGS FOR THOSE FAMILIES WHO WERE MOST IN NEED (WITH EITHER THE LARGEST NUMBER OF MEMBERS OR WITH PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES). THE HOUSES – BUILT WITH LOW BUDGET, IN THE AREA WHERE THE COMPANY OPERATES – WERE TO BE FINISHED IN LESS THAN A FEW MONTHS, BEFORE WINTER CAME.

THE AUSTRIAN INVESTOR WANTED THE IMAGE THAT PROMOTES THE NEW HOUSING TO CAPTURE THE ATMOSPHERE OF ROMANIAN VERNACULAR ARCHITECTURE. THUS, WOOD GAINED A MAJOR ROLE IN THE PROCESS OF CONSTRUCTION. ALTHOUGH THE HOUSES WERE DESTINED FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED, THE AESTHETICAL ASPECT HAS NOT BEEN NEGLECTED AT ALL. THE ARCHITECTURAL VOCABULARY GRAVITATES AROUND MINIMALISM, KEEPING A FORMAL AND VOLUMETRIC AUSTERITY, WARMED ONLY BY THE USE OF WOOD ON THE FACADES. THE HOUSES WERE BUILT IN LESS THAN FOUR MONTHS, SO THAT THE END OF THE YEAR AL-READY FOUND THEM OCCUPIED BY THEIR NEW FAMILIES. EVEN THOUGH THE BUDGET DID NOT RISE ABOVE 300 EURO / SQM, THE HOMES MANAGED TO OBTAIN THE DESIRED HIGH COMFORT AND QUALITY OF LIVING.

Pe fondul inundatiilor din zona in anul 2010, care au afectat cateva sute de gospodarii, investitorul, fidel conceptiilor de implicare activa in sprijinul comunitatilor aflate in dificultate a finantat realizarea a opt locuinte pentru cele mai defavorizate familii. Proiectul a vizat construirea a doua tipologii de locuinte care trebuiau ridicate in 3 luni de zile (pana la venirea iernii) si trebuiau sa se incadreze intr-un buget redus.

Investitorul austriac a dorit ca imaginea pe care o promoveaza noile locuinte sa preia elemente din imaginea locuintelor traditionale din tara sa si sa mizeze pe utilizarea sincera a lemnului ca material de constructie. Desi sunt locuinte pentru familii de sinistrati, prin faptul ca au caracter permanent, estetica este una minimalista, realizata cu mijloace putine de expresie, pastrand o austeritate formala si volumetrica indulcita doar de folosirea lemnului pentru finisajele exterioare. Casele au fost construite in 3 luni de zile si s-au incadrat intr-un buget total de 300 Euro/mp.
