Home Behind a Wall / La Mirateca
‘Home behind a wall’ is a undertaking resolved based mostly on the preliminary situation of offering an opaque response to its relationship with the general public thoroughfare able to permitting better privateness for customers and a extra comfy inner operation with out the should be conditioned by what occurs outdoors. The absence of a gap within the facade implies creating our personal instruments to resolve the group of this system and resolve with the identical development what was eradicated by the beginning premise.
The plot on which the undertaking is positioned lacks orographic traces able to conditioning the constructing. Alone, a beforehand created synthetic platform is the one vital ingredient and the purpose the place the scheme rests. Three patios resolve the functioning of night time makes use of and an outside area configured by the constructing and the dividing partitions present a double area for widespread makes use of with a sheltered outside space.
The concrete permits fixing the resounding response to the outside of the undertaking whereas creating the likelihood that the constructing meets the bottom punctually, naturally assimilating the substitute orography created on the plot so that there’s continuity between the completely different ranges. The concrete and its personal development decide the form of the constructing whereas permitting it to be molded plastically in order that the transition between the completely different heights is steady and never divided by the use of an orthodox superimposition of flooring.
On this sense, the primary facade is reworked into a big 24-meter edge beam able to flying over the bottom, making a shaded space beneath it and hiding behind it essentially the most intimate areas of the habitat. Subsequently, it accommodates the entry by the use of a ramp that continues with the concept of giving spatial continuity to the outside components whereas permitting a leisurely view of the entry and its opening to the panorama of the distant metropolis. In its encounter with the day space, the enclosure disappears and is reworked into large-format glass components, thus resolving a right away interior-exterior relationship.
Thus, concrete permits the undertaking to not be a single response and to rework itself because the context generated by the completely different components calls for.
