Studio Insign are shortlisted again in the ID&A Awards 2014: This time for the Retail Space Award with their Noblesse Palace project.
Noblesse Palace is an old building dating from 1881, an historical monument. Its style is eclectic, being one of the first buildings of this style in Bucharest. Studio Insign were involved in all the works of refurbishment, including the walls, ceilings and the windows.
It is a multifunctional building, primarily being an exclusive furniture show-room but also an art and events center. Studio Insign integrated new and modern elements into the space, for example, video proiectors and sound systems whilst managing to achieve this within a very classical environment. All of the stucco works were produced by professionals, bringing back to life an important architectural monument.
This project was completed over the period of one year being a huge achievement bearing in mind most all of the building was destroyed by the passing of time. The floors are now covered with different types of marble, with a pattern created by the architects.The stucco walls were created by using the same methods from 1881, and the ceiling was hand painted and covered with gold leaf.
