The project is a first floor 300 sqm duplex house. The apartment benefits from natural daylight from two courtyards which are at its limits, at the apartment’s core a stair connects both levels and is the main element of the house. With the aim of addressing this as the main structural core and as the heart of the flat itself, the project draws inspiration from Martk Rothko’s colour fields and treats it with two sets of coloured tiles.
As G. Bachelard says in ‘The Poetics of Space’ everyday movements up and down the stairs takes us on a phenomenological journey, from cellar to attic, to show how our perceptions of houses and other shelters shape our thoughts, memories, and dreams.
Casaplata is a restaurant and cocktail bar in the very center of Seville. Differently from similar projects developed in the area which sought to revive a historical past, this project looks towards the future with no element of nostalgia. Similarly to the still lives of Giorgio Morandi the proposal can is defined through strong colored pieces that stand out over a silver gray atmosphere. The aim here is to reinforce the gastronomic, to focus on what is within reach by by blurring the lines of the environment. Upon this underdone stage, a vaporous furniture appears made with colored perforated sheets.
