Calujac Architecture is an architectural studio founded in Chisinau, Republic of Moldova and is providing architectural services worldwide.

Our knowledge, thoughts and former experiences shape the optimal solutions for the most intricate problems that arise. Every new project is a challenging experiment, where we mix and match forms and materials, analyze the results and come to a conclusion. We provide bold and unusual outcomes and monitor the evolution of the project from the first draft to the finished construction.
