The Andreescu & Gaivoronschi Associated Architects have designed this contemporary house in the north of Timisoara, Romania based on a unique concept of “house on a house”. The architects thought of adopting a clannish tradition typical where young members of the family live with the parents. The “house on house” meant the coexistence between the young and the old members of the family. The former is symbolized by the wood material, while the latter is symbolized by the stone . It is said that wood suggests youth and freshness, whereas, stone indicates the passing of time. The residence as a whole is a wooden house built on a larger stone house.
