Sunset Lake Residence

Client : Sunset Lake

Date : 2016

Sunset Lake Residence is a collective housing complex with four seven-floor buildings found in the outskirts of Bucharest. Its name comes from Lake Grivita found next to the land of the proposal and it is an important element to the development. This development wants to offer its residents a calm and pleasant atmosphere with a range of natural elements, such as the lake, the materials used, the courtyard etc. The four buildings are found close to the street to creature a leisure centre next to the lake. These buildings are placed on the terrain to create a protected green area with a beautiful playground for children. All the entrances of the buildings are found in this courtyard; it is also the connecting area between the buildings and the entertainment zone. In this proposal, one can find from studios to 4-room apartments, all efficiently designed with high adaptability to the residents’ demands and needs. The facades are mostly white with accents from the wood, stone and glass textures. The stair case and the common area are highlighted with a darker colour which divides the longer façades elegantly. The approach focuses on offering families affordable and modern spaces found away from the city centre to escape for the urban pollution and noise.
