PRE-COMPETITION IN IDEAS FOR EMVS VALLECAS 39, MADRID
The city is a focal point of relations in the territory, but within it are pockets of extreme privacy with maximum expression in the family home. We propose a privacy transition between the city public and more private garden where they have room for another series of spaces.
The intermediate spaces, groups, creates a buffer between the street and private housing. These spaces are distributed on the ground floor and first floor leading to areas of recreation and relaxation, which is accessed via 4 entrances from the street. Each home has a separate access from the street semiprivate, and direct access from the parking lot. It also has a multipurpose room to accommodate the shared activities that require an interior space.
The geometric and urbanistic conditions of the site defined by a homogeneous distribution of parallel plots and equal-oriented southeast. Respecting a 50% occupancy, the lateral boundary distances and by docking to a median, parallel set pieces that advertise the site and create the privacy of each dwelling. These substructures are home all resting spaces that open to a private space.
Nature and City equalizer
The alternation in the placement of the rooms, upstairs volumes, generates a chain of outdoor spaces with greater intimacy. Cross ventilation between two different areas, on the south side, plant cover is raised, and accessible on the west side is a passable cover and collectively. Climate protection and privacy of dwellings is achieved thanks to tramex shutters galvanized steel. The low density of the plot allows solving and exhaust housing floor area on two levels with reducing the impact of space occupied by the stairs. Disabled housing is arranged on one floor to avoid the stairs, and direct access to parking is via a lift.
The parking is dug in a basement floor giving direct access to each of the houses. There is the possibility of avoiding the basement excavation, placing the garage, utility room and ground floor as described in terms of housing, although this would undermine the shared spaces.
