They grew up together in their hometown. They were colleagues at school, at high school and at school Olympics; they were friends and neighbors from the block. They spent their student days together in Bucharest. At the beginning of their student days they were really passionate and eager to learn informatics and The Faculty of Automatic Control and Computer Science offered them the opportunity to remain colleagues. Alex and Răzvan lived together for a while in the student dormitories from Politehnica until Alex fell in love with Carmen. The two moved quickly together in a home of their own and so, Alex gave up the dormitories life. Răzvan continued to live in the student dorm until Silvia appeared in his life. At the end of their postgraduate studies, which they took together, Alex and Răzvan got married. Alex got married first and after two years Răzvan did the same.
They looked up for their homes at the same time. Alex was already a father in the spring of 2014, so finding a home was a bigger emergency in his case. Răzvan and Silvia wanted a home of their own but searching for a house to match their style was the main issue. Alex found an apartment that offered him and his family what they needed: a home near a park, not far from the city center, close to the metro station and located in an area with good public transportation infrastructure. The apartment they chosen to be their home it is part of a neighborhood of blocks, has three rooms and is located on one of the main boulevards. It only takes Carmen 5 minutes to get to the park with the baby stroller.
The block was initially the property of a State enterprise and was planned to be the location of protocol for the employees the enterprise had in Romania. The block’s foundation started in 1989 but the construction was finalized in 1994, when the private property in Romania started to take form after a period of repression. The owner from who Alex and Carmen bought the apartment had the entire floor out for sale, which means two more apartments and a studio apartment.
Răzvan and Silvia were in full home searching process when Alex and Carmen became owners, so the possibility of looking up an apartment close to their friends completed their long time friendship customs. Unlike them, Răzvan and Silvia wanted to live in a place from where they could get to the office and back home quickly. This was the reason why the option of living in a residence complex lost to choosing a neighborhood of monolith blocks, older but central.
In the autumn of 2014 the two friends became neighbors again, because both of them bought two apartments located in the same block and on the same floor. In 2014 a market research showed that the ideal apartment in Bucharest is one with three rooms, a surface of X meters, located in Tineretului neighborhood and hunted by young people between 25-40 years old who work in the IT field or banking filed and who have or wish to have a family. So, again, a family profile.
