The task emerges from reusing the current spaces of a house manufactured over 40 years back, to create autonomous lodging for every relative with the requirement of safeguarding the building’s embodiment, attempting to have minimal number of changes and attempting to ensure unique points of interest which thusly must be coordinated into the new venture.
In addition, the venture is confronting south, which implies it overheats amid the mid year.
This prompted our essential need to cover the ecological element, i.e. to make a transitional space between the private region and open regions, without losing association between these however in the meantime lessening the natural variables.
This was accomplished with a twofold veneer configuration, for which bronze Reflecta glass was utilized because of its gigantic focal points: it permits a perspective to the outside however constrains the perspective to the inside offering security to the rooms. What’s more, we planned square windows that counter the immediate impact of the wind, taking into account its flow without influencing the inward exterior, serving to channel daylight and setting an agreeable temperature. The remarkable element of this outline is to segregate the outside commotion and not lose the association with it, on account of this configuration we made middle of the road patios, which interface both connections and which are available just from the private porches.
As for the insides, the current building consumed a program’s piece, on the other hand, as indicated by the venture’s needs we expected to make new ranges. The main critical change was the lobby’s annihilation, which brought about two separate pieces connected by extensions, bringing about the formation of an inside greenery enclosure, which works as a corridor and interfaces the rooms, and additionally producing better lighting and ventilation inside.
The inside reflects mood and agreement, with the utilization of chiaroscuro hues; the lighting makes a play of light from higher to lower force that stands out from the outside lighting, the subsequent venture gives the chance to encounter diverse methods for living as per the space where you are.
