We believe that the idea of dimension doesn’t have to relate directly to the word measure, it can go far beyond that.
We were fascinated by the concept of making a house focusing on the distance between the spaces.
“People like to keep certain distances between themselves and other people or things. And this invisible bubble of space that constitutes each person’s territory is one of the key dimensions of modern society.”
How could be a house where the distance between people and spaces creates the house itself?
The building has to become a device that constantly creates distance.
Starting from the courtyard typology where the distance is generated by a void, we designed a house where the distance is generated by a volume.
This becomes the building’s core, defining the hierarchy of the distances in the house.
The house take a sort of a labyrinth concept, where the paths around the core create the distances and always the feeling of being inside a bigger organism.
The void between the central core and the outer walls become the potential of the project, generating a new perception that expands the sense of the living space.
The project is made in collaboration with AA Collective.
