Longlisted for Dezeen Awards 2021 emerging architecture studio of the year, VATRAA is an architecture practice founded in 2018 by Anamaria Pircu and Bogdan Rusu.
From our London and Bucharest-based studios, we design buildings with character and power to act positively.

We believe that architecture's ultimate role is to improve people's lives. To achieve this, we embrace and use each project's constraints as a catalyst for creative, problem-solving solutions. This approach leads to an architecture completely customised to meet the needs of the end-user in terms of efficiency and atmosphere.

Our latest project is the Joint Winner of Compact Design of the Year at Don't Move Improve 2021.

VATRAA has been longlisted in the emerging architecture studio of the year category of Dezeen Awards 2021.
