The study is the result of a proposal for a project competition designed to transform the former furniture factory in Cluj into a complex of activities, services, and housing. We contributed to a joint venture initiated by Planwerk, the developer of the urban concept, the masterplan, with an intervention by recycling the building on the boundary with public space. Liberty becomes Liberty, preserves and reuses several old buildings, valuable by space and details, but also through the sustainability strategy. The façade doubles, the verticality is accentuated by the tire partitions, the high staircases, and the extra top construction. The project was not the one selected by the owner but we like it and we will imagine it by comparison with what will be built in the years to come.
