Two criterea lead to the final solution: 1st, geometric: using the urban plan rules to stablish the perimeter and roof level; 2nd, manipulate the interior space in relation with the neighbour buildings and the terrace that allows a view of the sea. Our goal was maximize the exterior space, building a compact volume in 3 floor plans. The interior organization is generated around a central comunication corridor, to liberate space to the compartments.The dark phenolic plywood of the facade served as a ‘spacesuite’ that protects against the ‘radiation’ of reality, its context and its territory.
Saturation, the interior is completly white, with distinct temperatures of color. The two glass-roofs bring permanent natural light to the house, even when the exterior ‘skin’ is entirely closed. The proximity (6 meters) of the adjacent houses led to an architecture closed off to its neighbours. The insertion of the roof sky-lights makes an improvement to the sunlight and ventilation of the house, while providing privacy to the interior life, it is a way to face the challenge of building in such small allotments.
