The most recent distinction was the Grand Prix International Architecture Contest in Italy, where the building ranked third.
“The project has the ability to provoke emotions by incorporating light and reflections into surfaces coated with glossy ceramic tiles. These reflections multiply, blurring the constructive lines, canceling the boundaries between the ceiling, the walls, and the floor, creating an atypical space defined only by the glossy surface of the ceramic tiles “, the jury motivated this important award for the smartest western building Romania.
