A project for the renovation of ground floor premises with the minimum possible input of resources, and with very specific and exacting functional requirements, given the programme it hosts, a social services centre.
The project consist in a refurbishment of an apartment, adapting it to the needs of the new inhabitants, a couple with a child.
The structural configuration of the house defines two halves: a very regular one and a good orientation, in which the living room and bedrooms are located (street strip), and another very irregular part, with little natural light and very compartmentalized, in which the services are concentrated (inner strip).
The issue here is the construction of a pavilion on a roof terrace to complement the uses of a small apartment. A second living room and a studio bedroom.
The pavilion is placed transversely on the terrace, of elongated proportions, and segments it, thus generating a sequence of interior and exterior spaces that redefine the way the dwelling is lived. The alignment of the openings generates a direct visual relation between spaces.
