RUNNER UP EUROPAN 2011 : Terracement // Play- mobile
The proposal generates new relations to the landscape, considered the most relevant character in the surroundings, instead of creating predictable links to the existing urban development. Thus will preserve the identity of the town, besides adding a layer of new ways of living and working around consolidated areas that will attract new dwellers. Both urban patterns will establish a fresh dialogue by juxtaposition.
The structure solves three different categories related to VERSALITY (the organization of cores established a new morphology of expressive space), capacity of ALTERATION of surroundings (re-ordering; re-solutions; re-use) and ADAPTATION to all type of users through the develop of furnishing modules.
Main cores contain installations, structure, stairs and built-in furniture in order to liberate the maximum area for the needs of users. Besides, there are different units that offer freedom in the composition of the apartment program, being able to be modified through time.
Due to the range of different units used for each case, the flexibility of their combinations makes possible the transformation of any space to hold complementary activities. The user will customize the ambient of each dwelling, opening and closing different light and isolation panels in façade. The proposal gives users the opportunity to decide whether to have open spaces or separated areas.
The façade also participates in the role of combinations to create a neutral space, being able to modify its porosity affecting only certain layers of sustainable materials.
Depending on the needs of users and climatology, the terraced-structure makes interior to be part of the exterior and control how the area grows through time.
New LIVING BASIC UNITS offers a combination of series that create new ways of living, innovative tourist areas while gaining new population. The decision of how to live in every apartment is given to the user, who will be able to use the space in several possibilities, besides saving on system line production, easy storage and transport and adaptation to all type of user through furnishing units are considered relevant issues taken into consideration.
