The project concerns the refurbishment of a cooking and dining area in an existing house. A folded wall, reminiscent of a screen, acts as a filter between both spaces. It preserves their autonomy while allowing cross views that are extended throughout the existing windows.
A series of timber pilasters give the rhythm and articulate the different openings that vary between passages and an open bar. Family and guests can gather around the latest to share a glass of wine or a starter while the host is cooking.
The chromatic game of figure and ground allows a visual intertwining of the screen and the kitchen features, blurring the limit between the interior and exterior of each space. Variations of the same primary colour – IKB and sky blue – emphasize either the depth or the surface quality of elements. Exposed timber fragments relate to the existing oak floor underlining the connection between old and new.
