The apartment is situated in an old palace whose interior was demolished in the 80's, leaving only the main facade. This intervention profoundly modified the original character of the building, with a left / right typology in open space, with the circulation core in the center. The wooden structure was replaced by a structure of pillars and concrete beams. The right foot has been reduced to a minimum.
As a project strategy it was decided to accept the condition of the existing building. To this end, the projecting structure was assumed, painted in white and the pavement was removed, leaving the concrete slab in sight.
The program corresponded to an apartment for the rental of rooms to students where the challenge was to organize the essential spaces adapted to the type of use intended, taking full advantage of the solar orientation and the relationship of space with the exterior. To this end, a functional volume was placed in the center of the space that housed the sanitary facilities and the kitchen. Then, and through the placement of a polycarbonate partition, has been created a common space of use, this area is quite wide divided into living area and dining area. In this way, it was possible to give preference to each room having a window to the outside. This central nucleus also allowed the creation of another four that gives to the patio.
