004 A SEASONAL DWELLING

SPECULATIVE PROJECT

2017
A speculative project, the proposition concerns the formation of a small house - an economic dwelling intended for seasonal occupation.

The plan of the building assumes the arrangement of three aggregated squares of different scale, organised in such a way as to create four distinct but intimately connected parts: terrace, living space, bathroom, bedroom.

Marking the centre of the building is a column. This object (or ‘figure’) performs an essential structural task, supporting the weight of the principal roof structure and the taller volume above it. Beyond its practical function, the column acts to establish a spatial focal point around which the building’s interior spaces are organised and the occupants’ movements and domestic rituals are ordered.
