The project in question is a reform of a one-floor house,functioning as a house-workshop,located in the neighbourhood of Sants.The chamfer geometry of the twentieth-century building is taken advantage of,offering an ample space in contact with the street and a more sheltered space lit through a courtyard that opens towards the interior of the block.The original partitions are demolished,leaving the structure of the load-bearing walls exposed.
The kitchen and the room are placed within the building's load-bearing walls,while the workshop-living room is open and in contact with the street.The access takes place directly from the street,through a covered space that runs towards the interior articulating the transition from the public space to the domestic space.Easily installed economical materials of low maintenance are used.
The materials being worked with are concrete,either in the form of blocks or pavement tiles,pine wood for the horizontal surfaces and enclosures,and finally ceramic tiles in the bathrooms and the kitchen.The vertical walls and the ceiling are painted white to ensure the correct natural lighting and in order to unify the different textures,both the pre-existing and the new ones.The fixtures remain exposed as well.It is a project that takes advantage of the virtues of a traditional architectural typology to accommodate a flexible home.
