Calup is an urban regeneration project, its main goal is to re-integrate valuable inactive spaces within the city’s cultural and economic circuit. The platform aims to bring together space owners, projects, creative professionals and the wider public and together to grow the quality of our urban life.

Operating as an incubator for adaptive reuse projects, Calup Space Starter offers integrated consulting and design&build services to initiatives that want to (re) develop or reshape existing spaces with real potential for regeneration.


2019 // Recul Space
Recul is an independent theater that produces improvisation of long form, sketch and drama. The Recul Space project, developed in partnership with Calup, transforms a former unused industrial hall from the Old Cotton Factory into a creative 830 sqm hub. The space houses a 140 people theatre, as well as flexible spaces for workshops, courses, events and a café bar.
The design & build process involved uncovering the concrete structure, rehabilitation of the metallic carpentry, mosaic flooring and the complete change of the facilities. A curtain network allows flexible partitioning, bringing a significant contribution to the thermal and sound efficiency of the space, while the metal theater stand and bar structure is the only constructed intervention.
Recul Space brings new breath and a cultural edge to the creative platform of the Old Cotton Industry and an important urban regeneration project for Bucharest.

2017//Divan Garden/Old Town Dweller’s House
Divan Garden is a pilot-project space dedicated to cultural projects, discussions in an amiable atmosphere. Opened in collaboration between the National Institute of Heritage, with support from MEDS – Meeting of Design Students, the Calup initiative’s goal was to create a way to experience heritage in a contemporary manner.
