ateliercetrei, written in one word in lowercase letters, is a partnership practicing architecture, interior architecture, design, urban planning and cultural analysis trying to bring together academia, design research and professional practice. The one word stands for unity, while the lowercase letters are meant to offer a nod to the Bauhaus notion of a non-hierarchical language, reinforcing our ethos of democratic partnership. The practice is led by two partners in charge of the different ongoing projects: Anamaria Moldovan and Paul-Mihai Moldovan.
Our work [products, spaces and theories] is meant to help improve the quality of its [end]users' life and is characterized by its high project quality. We are developing our projects from the early sketches to on-site supervision. We are used to applying the same attention to details from a small furniture project to an urban one. In this approach we see ourselves as our clients partners, rather then their consultants. We believe in a collaborative work process done by teams that have the clients as part of them. Such a work process defines the best possible solutions that none of the team members could have conceived of initially or individually.
