Ávila is a challenge that reinterprets what was originally an open-program warehouse located in the Poble Nou neighborhood of Barcelona to turn it into a 120 m2 multi-useful and habitable room. The proposal aims to carry out this transformation utilizing what we connect with “the minimum signifies to inhabit a place”, specifically, storage, humid spaces, and circulations, looking at the full cost-free quantity and not just it’s area.
From the arrangement of various development pieces that articulate the various environments, and with the least necessary partitions, we perform and venture the void as the primary factor of the proposal. Also, the distributor on the upper flooring is proposed as a diagonal, square-shaped void that, even with the simplicity of the total, enables cross visuals between all the rooms, such as the just one on the rear façade from the staircase.
With the use of constant materials and mild hues, the intention is to attain a bright, neutral, and warm location at the exact time, making use of the home furnishings and integrating it from the beginning of the project. The proposal values the area many thanks to its simplicity, the unique textures of the materials, and the gentle, leaving aside any surplus or ornament and focusing on enjoyable the requirements of its inhabitants.
