3 PIECES OF FURNITURE CREATE A HOME


The aim was to convert a former two floor office in a rental
apartment. The proposal, which develops at the lower level,
focuses on reconverting a small area, originally subdivided and
dark, to accommodate the social areas of the house.


The intervention proposes to let the light flow, converting it into a diaphanous space and thus increasing the feeling of spaciousness.
The main decision is not to build, intervening by dispensing with
traditional construction work, in favor of a dry approach, much
simpler, without creating new walls or divisions.


To that, the plant is emptied, introducing in the diaphanous space
3 wooden pieces of furniture that will organize the space.
Firstly, a box contains wet areas: kitchen and bathroom. A mobile
with a bookcase and table gives form to the entrance and to a
small office under the stairs. Finally, movable lower furniture
separates the living and eating areas.


With only these three pieces, shape is given to the spaces of the
house, always visually connected to maintain unity and flow of
southern light.


This work, closer to carpentry than building construction, focuses
on the details and encounters. Reducing to a minimum the elements, fittings, switches, etc. The objects are designed to provide the
greatest possible sobriety, resulting in a high degree of abstraction
and giving the house enhanced spatial clarity.
