Thor Home / Grass+Batz Arquitectos
Textual content description offered by the architects. After the Pandemic lockdown, we designed Thor Home as a undertaking that seeks to generate a possibility to reside with more room, with a backyard, combining household life and work life. The undertaking begins from the partial restoration of an present 70 sq. meter home, eradicating all the inside partitions of its construction, turning it into a typical area – integrating kitchen, eating room, and front room: constructing the detrimental, reworking the prevailing constructed mass right into a quantity of air for the brand new home.
On high of it, from occasion wall to occasion wall, we constructed a metal construction warehouse that accommodates the utmost buildable quantity in keeping with present rules, with a ground space of 130 sq. meters and a most inside top of 6 meters. Between the prevailing home and the warehouse, we roofed two inside volumes of decrease top – one for folks, one other for youngsters – which include bedrooms, bogs, and storage rooms, which require extra privateness. The remaining is a typical area that’s perceived as bigger than its 70 sq. meter floor because of the double inside top.
Within the decrease degree, the frequent area opens in the direction of the yard. This has been planted – just like the entrance yard – with low water consumption plant species. In direction of the road, a very airtight facade, producing safety and on the identical time permitting most transparency and publicity of a entrance yard supplied for anybody’s view from the road. A big rectangular oculus of two.5×2.5m watches over the road and, in flip, fills the inside frequent area with oblique mild. The distinction between opening and blind panel is accentuated by the darkish end of charred wooden boards (Yakisugi Shikkoku).
