substandardPLUS / strengthening living condition


The project is an exercise of redefining the limit, that uses the human and material resources available to improve the living conditions of persons who are using the night shelter in Pantelimon frequently.
As a reaction to the excessive presence of fences in the Bucharest public space, the project
proposes a new form of delimitation made out of three types of equipment: the lockers – 48 units
for storage with access both inside the shelter and from the street, the open shelter – space for waiting and socializing at the entrance to the shelter and the neighborhood collector – addressed to the locals citizens as an area of ​​donations.
