Art Nouveau Project

Art Nouveau style house project. Plantelor area, Bucharest (©Valentin Mandache)

The image above shows one of the most exquisite period houses in Bucharest, undergoing a thorough specialist Art Nouveau renovation. The house structure dates from the 1900s and it was a Little Paris style dwelling. What we see now is a thorough transformation in Art Nouveau, undertaken in the last decade. It is obviously a very expensive enterprise in a city where builders’ prices are on a par with those found in London. The progress of this project seems to have been quite slow since I visited it last February, also probably because of the onset of a very serious financial and economic crisis in Romania. In the following months I intend to post some more updates about this iconic project for Romania’s capital city and its period property market.


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


If you plan acquiring a historic property in Romania or start a renovation project, I would be delighted to advice you in locating the property, specialist research, planning permissions, restoration project management, etc. To discuss your particular plan please see my contact details in the Contact page of this weblog.
