Concrete House, Ecuador
The Concrete House project is developed from the conformation of 2 independent programmatic elements. Between them an empty space is generated whose main function is to transmit specific sensory perceptions of tension, attraction and step.
The conceptual strategy of “volumetric tension” is used with the aim of guiding the users through 2 solid volumes in the front that progressively become transparent towards the rear garden.
The resulting object obtain a contrasting system between closed and open (without relation and total relation with the exterior space).
The outdoor living room space is used as the nucleus of the social spaces, being a flexible program it allows its partial or total integration with the rest of the spaces located on the ground floor, producing a sensation of spatial expansion and compression that the user can control in depending on their specific needs and activities.
The selection of materials is analyzed according to the properties that each one has and transmit to the users. The exposed concrete is mainly used to provide the feeling of “introverted” or private, while the combination of metal and glass produce the feeling of “extroverted” or social of family interaction.
Volumetrically, there is a white cube that floats on the front façade and a concrete cube that is buried at the top of the rear façade. This strategy generates a programmatic and spatial contrast.
In the house, a large amount of analysis was studied in order to enhance the sensory perceptions of expansion, compression of space through the creation of a series of horizontal, vertical and diagonal spatial relationships between the different programmatic spaces that compose it.
