Ovidiu grew up in the unspoiled countryside environment of post-communist Romania. As a child, driven by an attraction to flight and with a hand for craft, he built model airplanes, a crossbow and, in his early teens, a paraglider harness.
He studied architecture at the Polytechnic University of Timisoara and the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, UK. As a student, his questioning and insightful attitude brought him acknowledgment in several international architecture competitions among which he was awarded at Contemporary Bridge Competition Berlin and finalist at Design for Death Competition Singapore in 2013.
Ovidiu successfully collaborated with acclaimed architecture studio Archaeus , gaining first prize at the regional architecture competition in 2014.
Further, Ovidiu brought a consistent input as an interior and product designer with Ezzo Design. The overall success of projects during this period is partly due to the relationships developed with his clients. He has the ability to perceive and interpret understated subtleties and puts an emphasis on the common ground which is central to good design.
After leaving Ezzo Design, Ovidiu starts a succesful collaboration with Twins Studio in Bucharest, an interior design practice which recently gained international acknowledgment, being awarded the 2015 Restaurant and Bar Award with project “Biutiful by the Lake”.
