A studio driven by an enthusiasm for solving design challenges, VATRAA is a young practice that works across London and Bucharest.
Founded in 2018 by Anamaria Pircu and Bogdan Rusu, VATRAA carve spaces that are designed to improve wellbeing, lifestyle and the surrounding environment. Drawing on principles of longevity and conservation, each project is grounded in context and natural materials that age beautifully. composition, functionality, order and coherence are central to their designs and they work closely with clients to translate their visions into reality.
For VATRAA, home is an expression of identity. Flick through their completed projects and you’ll find idiosyncratic spaces that take a new approach to architectural challenges. Their pink plaster-finished Council House Renovation, perched on a tight plot, won a Don’t Move, Improve! Award while their house extension in Camden repurposed material from demolished features to create stained glass insertions and a pitched roof.
