Residential building with shops, garages and underground garages and Administrative building for the needs of Ovcha kupel district
The inspiration for the name of the new building of IDEA HOME was by CASTANEA. Apart from the fact that for many of the inhabitants of the capital, the tree continues to be a symbol of the city, the plant is laden with great symbolism throughout the world. The CASTANEA architecture is multi-component, stylish and elegant, tailored to all modern trends.
CASTANEA consists of two main buildings. One of which is six and the other three floors, clearly defining the characteristic functionality. Despite the different uses, we have achieved a sense of integrity through the specificity of the main architectural elements and a common line at the ground level. The larger body is residential, with shops and an underground parking area, and the smaller one is entirely intended for the administrative needs of Sofia Municipality Ovcha Kupel district.
The modern look of CASTANEA is achieved through large volumes, elegant shapes and well-appreciated architectural details that shape a tight and comfortable composition. The main color of the building is white to give a sense of purity and sophistication and serves as a canvas to achieve contrast between the rest of the ensemble of different materials such as white limestone, light travertine, granite, metal and glass.
Impeccable architecture, good and communicative location and high quality performance make CASTANEA a unique project on the territory of Ovcha kupel district, which we believe will leave a memorable impression in the overall appearance of the area.
