004 A SEASONAL DWELLING

SPECULATIVE PROPOSAL

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 element 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.
