3 in 1 home / Piano Piano Studio
Textual content description offered by the architects. As quickly as we opened the door, we had been greeted by a slender, darkish house with an extended hall working via the entire home giving entry to 5 rooms: a rest room, a big bed room, a small bed room, a kitchen and a living-dining room. We discovered an anodyne structure with an evident spatial poverty by which the proprietor, regardless of having lived there for greater than 10 years, informed us that he had not received used to it and conveyed his need to provide character, brightness and heat to his dwelling.
Based mostly on the 70 m2 of the home and the proprietor’s necessities, we proposed 3 areas that flowed between them and that may very well be used as a single house or as three impartial ones, relying on their wants: bedroom-bathroom, multipurpose room and kitchen-dining-living room.
The three in 1 home is achieved by pulling down some partition partitions and perforating others, giving rise to an ambiguous, infinite and illuminated hall always. This hall will generally be a passageway and at different instances, if the person seems like altering the openings of the rooms, it could possibly type a part of certainly one of them.

With the intention to give it a extra marked aesthetic air and to provide mild, brightness and character to the intervention, three colors had been chosen because the driving pressure behind each the organisation and the usage of the challenge.
Previous to the refurbishment, the dwelling was, following a useful resource utilized by its proprietor to scale back the gray color of the home windows, painted in gray in its entirety and, along with the matt greyish beige flooring and the wood joinery in mild tones, the picture it provided was removed from being luminous; in reality, fairly the alternative.
As a counter technique, via a composition of three colors that helped to organise a single house subdivided into three, we assigned every of the colors to the weather in line with the intention in every of the areas, thus giving clues as to the makes use of and capabilities of every of them.
Thus, within the challenge, the usage of color turns into a very powerful side of the intervention with the aim of discovering for the proprietor a house by which to put all his belongings comfortably and to obtain family and friends in a home that’s extra akin to him than it was earlier than.
