Bos-Cos opens its first establishment in Seville with the aim of redrawing the panorama of tourist flats in the city, with the intention of bringing the concept closer to the traditional boutique hotel. The brief was to divide an old Sevillian courtyard townhouse into four independent flats, so that most of them could enjoy an independent terrace. In order to achieve this within the current legal framework, it was necessary to demolish an entire wing of the house that did not belong to the original construction and to build it from the foundations up. The result is four duplexes, two of them symmetrical and the other two fitted into the old construction. Being part of the building built from zero and the other part a refurbishement of a more than 100 years old construction, the main challenge was to bring unity to the whole. . The tool to get to this was the courtyard where vertical openings, traditional in Sevillian architecture, were forced to help giving rhythm and unity to the whole. The style makes nods to the materials, tones and elements of local architecture, combining it with some disruptive elements that add character and personality to the whole.

Bos-Cos abre su primer establecimiento en Sevilla queriendo redibujar el panorama de los apartamentos turísticos en la ciudad, con la intención de acercar el concepto al del tradicional hotel Boutique. El encargo consistía en dividir una antigua casa patio sevillana en cuatro apartamentos independientes, buscando que la mayoría de estos pudiesen disfrutar de una terraza independiente. Para poder conseguirlo dentro del marco legal actual, fue necesaria la demoliciòn de un ala completa de la vivienda que no pertenecía a la construcción original y levantarla desde cimientos. El resultado son cuatro duplex, dos de ellos contra- peados y simétricos y los otros dos encajados en la construcción antigua. Siendo parte obra nueva y la otra una construcción de más de cien años, el principal reto fue dar unidad al conjunto. Para esto se recurrió al patio y se forzó la apertura de huecos verticales, tradicionales en la arquitectura sevillana, que ayudan a dar ritmo y unidad al conjunto. El estilo hace guiños a los materiales, tonalidades y elementos de la arqui- tectura local combinándolo con algunos elementos disruptivos que le aporetan caracter y personalidad al conjunto.
