Primaverii Palace or “Ceausescu House” was for a quarter of a century (1965 – 1989) the private residence of spouses Nicolae (Romanian communist politician and leader) and Elena Ceausescu and their children, Nicu, Zoia and Valentin.
Built in the mid-60s, the house was enlarged between 1970 and 1972. For the Ceausescu family residence, architect Aron Grimberg-Solari was preferred. The architecture of the palace is complemented by the landscape ensemble designed by the architect Robert Woll (in fact the main designer of the residence’s furniture) and the landscape engineer Teodosiu.
“Ceausescu House” surprises both by its spatiality, balanced volumes, and by the luxurious, comfortable interior decoration, due to the architects Robert Woll and Agrippa Popescu.
Inside the exhibition there is an impressive collection of paintings signed by Octav Băncilă, Camil Ressu, Rudolf Cumpăna, Dumitru Ghiață, George Baron Lowendal as well as a lot of handmade tapestries, plus a large number of handmade mosaics by Prof. Olga Porumbaru and Prof. Florin Pârvulescu.
