Interview with Ece Öner – Architect for the new location
1. What is your part in the Hotspot Skyhub project?
I am an architect contributing and collaborating on the architectural drawings both in the definitive phase and in the construction phase of the Hotspot Skyhub project.
2. What are some innovative features that you brought here?
We as biroarchitetti look for realizing our ideas with solutions that are flexible; solutions made with components that are reversible for a possible future change of use. In this case, we work with modular solutions, using elements like glass partitions, gypsumboard walls, and even at a more detailed level, as lighting units, we chose a system that gives us the freedom to design in a reversible way.
3. What do you think about the project, space, and location of Hotspot Skyhub?
The overall renovation project aims to create co-working spaces that provide a wide range of order of the space, for any possible use scenario, meanwhile proposing common recreational spaces that provide areas for a pause and chit-chat.
The Orhideea Towers, being in the heart of the city of Bucharest, let the users experience urban life at its best; especially by giving the chance to examine a beautiful sunset and the skyline of the city. Yet, this renders the design of common recreational spaces of Hotspot Skyhub to engage with the city that lives out there, by creating these spaces oriented towards the lively views of the city.
