A system, the fragmentation of a composite grid, is incorporated into an already dense development. It includes an empty central space, either open or closed, for each of the two built units, a patio providing light, defining circulations and denying the basement.
The project builds double by necessity, while understanding the duplicity in duality, blurring in this way the adjoining volumes,its common boundaries.
Attach and detach to read two individual entities belonging to the same project, that of an ensemble. Understanding the ground as the base that bears the house. Turning the living area extension into an evening area for receptions, a prestigious space. Borrowing a ground that intersects the project's volumes and surfaces, connecting the different levels.
Combining an enclosed, sheltered indoor area with a framed, open, outdoor area. Making the sleeping area both a connected and cantilevered entity, projecting into the garden in the light of the central patio and enjoying a constant cross view over the two gardens - the first bordering the entrance and the second, more private, serving as an extension of the living room.
Supported by a concrete base, the construction uses two types of precast concrete in composite walls with a pattern that reflects an horizontal division for the emerging, anchored volume and another one delicately laying over it.
Both constructions are similar in their unity of composition and dissimilar in the different uses made of the grid, a 6 m x 6 m system enabling multiple combinations.
