The home is situated on the second ground of a creating crafted in 1950 in the Eixample’s Nova Esquerra community, Barcelona. The constructing has 4 doorways for every landing and is used for discounted center-class housing, as described by the architect F.J. Barba Corsini in the report of the municipal works file.
The construction of the household is made of load-bearing walls, with 6 openings parallel to the road, including the 4 façades: the two key ones 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 compact installation. The house is accessed from one particular conclude and its most important façade overlooks the inner courtyard of the block. It is made up of a dwelling-eating space, a kitchen, two bedrooms, and a restroom, in a regular and crushed area. The total place is 47.59 m2.
The task aims to do away with speculative distribution and, by removing a single of its rooms, it gets to use the little central ventilation patio as a central space close to which to rotate.
A shoring is proposed in the load-bearing wall that intended the circulation all-around the center, and the rest of the partitions are demolished. Integrating the load-bearing wall and the patio, the bordering volume of the toilet is proposed, with a ongoing strip of kitchen area and cabinets on the partition reverse the entrance.
The strategy which, as regular, is minimize small by the refusal of people to carry out any sort of structural intervention, no make a difference how minimum, forces us to change the challenge all-around without losing its essence. The inconvenience does not avert fixing the prepared software, as nicely as one of a kind attributes of the job: specially, to accommodate the owner’s selection of much more than 1,400 CDs and 1,200 vinyl documents, which is why ad hoc built-in home furniture is intended.
On a materials and chromatic stage, the northeast orientation of the only exterior façade tends to make the choice of flooring in direction of a clear surface that allows reflecting the scarce incoming light, although the colour of the ceiling is utilized as an element of warmth and consolation. This tone extends to the polygonal quantity of the bathroom, softening its edges and contrasting it with a bluish tone that emerges inside of and extends to specific details. Metallic factors contrast and nuance the nearly milky and heat ambiance of the house.
