The home is located on the next flooring of a making built in 1950 in the Eixample’s Nova Esquerra community, Barcelona. The developing has 4 doorways for every landing and is utilized for discounted middle-class housing, as explained by the architect F.J. Barba Corsini in the report of the municipal is effective file.
The construction of the residence is built of load-bearing walls, with 6 openings parallel to the road, including the 4 façades: the two major types and the two belonging to the inside courtyards. The flooring are divided into 2 by the central load-bearing wall, which is joined by a smaller set up. The house is accessed from a person stop and its major façade overlooks the interior courtyard of the block. It is composed of a living-eating area, a kitchen area, two bedrooms, and a restroom, in a traditional and crushed house. The full region is 47.59 m2.
The job aims to do away with speculative distribution and, by eradicating just one of its rooms, it gets to use the tiny central ventilation patio as a central location all over which to rotate.
A shoring is proposed in the load-bearing wall that intended the circulation all around the middle, and the relaxation of the partitions are demolished. Integrating the load-bearing wall and the patio, the surrounding quantity of the toilet is proposed, with a steady strip of kitchen and cupboards on the partition reverse the entrance.
The method which, as standard, is slice quick by the refusal of citizens to have out any kind of structural intervention, no issue how nominal, forces us to flip the challenge all around without having shedding its essence. The inconvenience does not protect against solving the planned program, as effectively as distinctive features of the job: exclusively, to accommodate the owner’s selection of much more than 1,400 CDs and 1,200 vinyl data, which is why advert hoc built-in home furniture is built.
On a content and chromatic amount, the northeast orientation of the only exterior façade makes the alternative of flooring towards a very clear surface area that lets reflecting the scarce incoming mild, even though the color of the ceiling is utilised as an component of warmth and consolation. This tone extends to the polygonal volume of the rest room, softening its edges and contrasting it with a bluish tone that emerges inside of and extends to precise details. Metallic aspects contrast and nuance the virtually milky and heat atmosphere of the property.
