Ioan Gramada House

Campulung Moldovenesc, judetul Suceava

AddressCiprian Porumbescu, 28


Included in the national park of monuments of architecture in June 1955, Ioan Gramada House, is a typical construction for the early nineteenth century. Typical urban construction, it was built by wealthy peasants. On 12 March 1737, Prince Ghica Voda recognized the native status of freeholders in Campulung. Among them is also included the family of Constantin Gramada (which had lands in Campulung, Sadova and Fundu), one of the richest families.

This family was at the same time owner of mills, mill fords, and a large number of animals. During the house's construction, being one of the richest families in that region, the house had to be representative.

The house was built by Master Grigore Rusu, of wood carved on four sides, also using material from the demolition of two houses; family members and other connoisseurs claim that it should be considered as belonging to the nineteenth century. Strong urban influence develops in the house plan with entrance hall and two rooms, a second round of living spaces, arranged in the back, the whole assembly being surrounded by a porch of carved beams, with a height of 0.7 m. The room at the back of the porch has the large size of the house's facade, changing its destination from pantry into kitchen and living room.
