How we work

Vlad Simionescu and Raluca Buzdugan founded the firm in 1995 in Bucharest, Romania. The firm was awarded twice The Best Architectural Office in Romania at the prestigious CIJ Awards, in 2014 and 2015.

“Vlad Simionescu & Asociatii, Arhitecti” is a firm structured to work in two modes: first, as a traditional firm, performing full design services for small and medium sized local projects, and second as a specialized design firm capable of working in complex international collaborations and associations.

The firm uses an intensive and thoroughly documented design process, focused on successfully integrating all functional and esthetic aspects of each project. The design team, working extensively in model form, produces and critically evaluates many alternative solutions for each design issue.

We, as professionals, have a strong belief that architecture can and needs to make our life better and our cities more enjoyable.
