PASITEA are two holiday rental apartments resulting from the transformation of an apartment in a XIXth century’s building located in the historical center of Siracusa.
A vestibule, where the color blurs the boundaries between the floor, walls and ceiling is the access device to the two apartments. Each accommodation is arranged in: a living room/kitchen, a bedroom and services. In each apartment, a cutout in the wall connecting two spaces of different sizes and all the structural elements mark the transition between entry and living room stimulating the perception of a temporary equilibrium. A color glaze, which runs through the house right to the bedroom, is overlapsed on doors, walls, and windows by defining a discrepancy that attempts to absorb the discontinuities that characterize the fundamental elements.
