Identical Neo-Romanian style houses in Bucharest city square

Recently I visited an interesting Bucharest square with identical model houses mirroring each other across the sides of that square, presented in the video above. This location was brought to my attention some time ago by Mr. Romulus Bena, a regular reader and commenter (on the Facebook page) of my articles. The architecture is Neo-Romanian with some Art Deco echoes. This set up is a rare occurrence in the inter-war Romanian urban planning. A few months ago I wrote about another similar urban set up from Campulung-Arges in southern Romania, click here for access. Bellow is an aerial view with the Bucharest city square documented in the video.

I endeavor through this series of daily articles to inspire appreciation of the historic houses of Romania, a virtually undiscovered, but fascinating chapter of European architectural history and heritage.

  1. Thank you for the credit and appreciation. :) I am glad you took a walk on that street to check out my suggestion. But it seems that in this way you have discovered another set of 4 identical buildings, in a square. The spot I was reffering to is in the intersection on the right in the aerial view, Brazilia and Washington street. http://www.norc.ro/pano/ZbEwq1yM/

    • Very interesting! It looks that the the model of the houses from the location pointed out in your link is the same as that from my video. Most probably that was a larger scale building project from the 1930s, using this type of Neo-Romanian design, something like Vatra Luminoasa development of the same era. Valentin
