Construction of two semidetached houses. But, how many homes have two houses? Maybe not just 2. We like its in definition. Are they are 6 houses, 4 or 2…?

We propose an ambiguous project in relation to size and number of homes. The houses are divided in compact volumes, with different sizes and heights.

Instead of the options of clearly delimiting the building into two volumes that correspond to two houses or making them into a single volume, we propose a combination of volumes, fragments of small houses, which create an architecture without scale. Each volume is built with one material only, on the exterior as well as the interior of the houses.

Behind the ‘main façade’ of the houses facing the street are the most hedonistic areas of the house. There are lattice-showers. Private places veiled by ceramic lattices that contain leisure spaces.

Conceptually, in the propose, the shape of the project and use of the materials are the reinterpretation of the traditional system. Two materials are especially important in this project, the slate and cobblestone, referring to traditional materials of the area where the project is located.

The strategy was to reinterpret this esthetic, but maintaining the same identity of the surroundings. Slate is traditionally used in roofing, however in this project it extends through the facade framing several parts of the houses. The use of cobblestone has a double function achieve an expressive facade and at the same time allows, due to this small pieces the construction of lattices in shower spaces, protecting them from the view of the street.
