The residence is positioned on the second floor of a creating designed in 1950 in the Eixample’s Nova Esquerra community, Barcelona. The constructing has 4 doors per landing and is utilized for discounted center-class housing, as described by the architect F.J. Barba Corsini in the report of the municipal is effective file.
The construction of the household is built of load-bearing partitions, with 6 openings parallel to the street, together with the 4 façades: the two principal types and the two belonging to the interior courtyards. The floors are divided into 2 by the central load-bearing wall, which is joined by a tiny installation. The house is accessed from a person conclusion and its major façade overlooks the inner courtyard of the block. It consists of a dwelling-eating room, a kitchen area, two bedrooms, and a restroom, in a traditional and crushed place. The overall place is 47.59 m2.
The project aims to reduce speculative distribution and, by removing one particular of its rooms, it will get to use the smaller central air flow patio as a central area all around which to rotate.
A shoring is proposed in the load-bearing wall that intended the circulation close to the centre, and the rest of the partitions are demolished. Integrating the load-bearing wall and the patio, the encompassing quantity of the toilet is proposed, with a constant strip of kitchen and cabinets on the partition opposite the entrance.
The approach which, as regular, is cut short by the refusal of people to have out any kind of structural intervention, no matter how nominal, forces us to change the challenge around with out getting rid of its essence. The inconvenience does not avert fixing the prepared system, as perfectly as exceptional qualities of the task: especially, to accommodate the owner’s collection of a lot more than 1,400 CDs and 1,200 vinyl documents, which is why advertisement hoc integrated furniture is intended.
On a product and chromatic level, the northeast orientation of the only exterior façade will make the decision of flooring toward a distinct floor that makes it possible for reflecting the scarce incoming light-weight, when the color of the ceiling is used as an aspect of heat and ease and comfort. This tone extends to the polygonal quantity of the bathroom, softening its edges and contrasting it with a bluish tone that emerges within and extends to unique factors. Metallic things distinction and nuance the virtually milky and heat environment of the residence.
