The project brief consisted of the reconstruction of a building, part of the same architectural block as Slavyanska 18-20, in the central part of Ruse. The intervention enables the coexistence of the new residential and the public function, preserving the historical artefacts and spirit. The interior spaces are more open and flexible to change.
We were approached with a brief to reconstruct neglected buildings that had a façade with cultural heritage status. The three designed buildings were within the same block. The wish of the client was to accommodate the ground floor with a commercial use, and separate the upper floors as b&b’s. The ground floor of this building hosted a spa. As in the other projects, some curious details of the project include preserved artefacts of the old building like cast iron columns and vaulted ceilings.
