The property is positioned on the second flooring of a creating created in 1950 in the Eixample’s Nova Esquerra neighborhood, Barcelona. The developing has 4 doorways for every landing and is applied for discounted center-class housing, as explained by the architect F.J. Barba Corsini in the report of the municipal operates file.
The construction of the dwelling is created of load-bearing walls, with 6 openings parallel to the road, which include the 4 façades: the two most important ones and the two belonging to the inside courtyards. The floors are divided into 2 by the central load-bearing wall, which is joined by a smaller installation. The household is accessed from a person close and its major façade overlooks the inner courtyard of the block. It is made up of a living-dining room, a kitchen area, two bedrooms, and a restroom, in a regular and crushed room. The overall location is 47.59 m2.
The venture aims to do away with speculative distribution and, by getting rid of a single of its rooms, it receives to use the smaller central air flow patio as a central place all-around which to rotate.
A shoring is proposed in the load-bearing wall that intended the circulation all-around the centre, and the rest of the partitions are demolished. Integrating the load-bearing wall and the patio, the bordering volume of the bathroom is proposed, with a steady strip of kitchen area and cupboards on the partition reverse the entrance.
The method which, as common, is slash limited by the refusal of people to have out any sort of structural intervention, no make any difference how negligible, forces us to flip the project around with no shedding its essence. The inconvenience does not stop solving the prepared software, as nicely as exceptional traits of the venture: precisely, to accommodate the owner’s collection of more than 1,400 CDs and 1,200 vinyl records, which is why ad hoc built-in furnishings is intended.
On a material and chromatic stage, the northeast orientation of the only exterior façade tends to make the alternative of flooring towards a apparent area that enables reflecting the scarce incoming light-weight, though the colour of the ceiling is utilized as an aspect of heat and comfort and ease. This tone extends to the polygonal volume of the toilet, softening its edges and contrasting it with a bluish tone that emerges within and extends to distinct factors. Metallic things contrast and nuance the practically milky and heat atmosphere of the dwelling.
