This project explores the different possibilities and repercussions of developing a new space, which in this case is an architectural device that not only takes care of a need – a workshop for an architecture student – but also modifies the image of a space with little architectural interest: the roof of a service-bedroom.

Designing a student’s workshop or work space, a typical assignment for a student of architecture that has taken on the form of cliché, represents an interesting challenge: how do you develop a simple project using devices that broaden the space, and allow for other uses such as sleep, dispensary for materials, and a place to hang out and work.

For this project, design decisions were restricted by the need to develop a blackboard interior, or a surface that could be etched on completely and would be made of formica slate, including the walls and furniture doors. Construction decisions were restricted by market standards and materials.

Working atop a fully operational house during the construction of the project made us use only the existing, flat roof to ensure no demolition works or other intervention in the house were needed. It also ensured interesting views from the workshop. Only one month of construction was allowed, so all decisions were associated with dry construction operations, considerably accelerating the process, along with working with modulations of structural plywood to minimize material loss and decrease the amount of work to be done onsite. The floor is made of metal and everything else of dry pinewood cut in large sections of a commercial standard.

We understand the work as a seemingly banal architectural device of little complexity, but of interest in its possibility and uses.
