Project DescriptionArchitecture is a snapshot of our current way of living. It is a synthesis of humanity in a specific period. After the Industrial Revolution, with the increasing reproduction of mass media, the introduction of new materials and new ways of transportation, the idea of a traditional interior space was transformed into a dialogue between interior and exterior. This change also challenged the boundaries of private and public spaces.
3:2 House has the intention to question the physical and visual boundaries of space in a single-family house. We pretend to create a visually continuous and connected area that is limited by a gradient boundary –rather than a physical wall- between the private and public areas of the house.
The project is divided into 4 zones: bedrooms in the private zone; library and studio in the semi-private; living and dining rooms in the public area and a services area. The private area merges into the semi-private, and the semi-private merges into the public area. It is a gradient transition of private spaces that encourages interaction between its inhabitants without losing the essence of traditional spaces.
The great windows facing south and the little diversity in its materials make it a very comfortable house for its latitude and it gives a timeless yet contemporary feeling.
