Previous project Next project

 

The main aim of this intervention was updating the main conference room which has not been modified in almost 18 years, while also providing new technical installations much needed for the conferences suppoosed to take place there.

The Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs made an inquiry regarding the fact that the conference room should be used for two major scenarios: the first one, hosting while 24 people around a main conference table, and the second one, while hosting 135 people attending press conferences, annual general assembly meetings, performative activities, protocol meetings, official duty welcomings, official soirees etc.

In order to provide with the balance between the old and the new, the main focus of this restoration was the revival of the existing ceiling, dating from the first half of the 20th century. All of the other finishings were dismissed, thus revealing the many interventions the room has been through during these past 80 years.

The finishings of the walls are made out of walnut veneer, while the color palette takes into consideration the inquiries made by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania.
