The GreenHouse was a project entrusted to us by a young couple, who provided a stimulating needs program with very specific characteristics. By aligning the wishes with the constraints of the project, we realized that the architectural answer would be the integration between the interior and the exterior, while, thanks to the establishment of green spaces with a lot of foliage, privacy could be preserved. The integration between interior and exterior made it possible to obtain full natural lighting, sometimes filtered by hollow elements, sometimes by dense vegetation, bringing to the project a very cozy architecture integrated into nature.
A contemporary concept of experience of spaces has been adopted, as well as contemporary architecture, which mixes current elements and modernist concepts expressed in cobogÃ³s and tile panels.
The architectural approach adopted was the hierarchical organization of the accesses (main, garage and services), in order to seek a better location of the building on the ground, which is located on a corner of the condominium. The main and service accesses were on the widest track and the garage on a secondary track, so we were able to better define the sectorization of activities and environments.
Therefore, by defining the accesses in opposite positions, we also defined that the sectors, social and services, would be opposed to the intimate and that a large bay with a butterfly cover, where the barbecue area is located, would connect sectors.
One of the strong points of this project, without a doubt, was the blanket in the shape of a “butterfly”. Despite the plastic involved in this roof solution, it was designed with the aim of solving the problem of the project, where we would have to connect the two blocks, the first being the ground floor (social and service) and the other with two floors (intimate area) and this solution landed on the architecture.
