  DUDESTI
 
 
Bucharest, Romania

Dudesti is a nine-hundred sqft., mixed-use project near the center of Bucharest, Romania. The building complex is comprised of an office tower and four residential towers, each of which contain a total of sixteen floors. The residential portion of the building consists of 480 apartments that vary from two to four bedrooms. The building also includes a health club on the ground floor and three levels of parking below ground.

The complex was developed by Romania's leading pre-cast fabricator. It was designed as a test bed and showcase for new seismic resistant pre-cast construction methods. After Bucharest's 1977 earthquake, which caused 1500 deaths, largely due to the failure of communist era pre-cast construction methods, pre-cast use in high-rise construction stopped. Radu Architects is proud to have been chosen to collaborate with top Californian and Japanese pre-cast engineers to revive its use in a safe and aesthetically sound manner. When built it will be the largest residential pre-cast project in Romania in over thirty years.
