TB House – Casa Tobogan. Vivienda unifamiliar asilada

Una familia busca una nueva casa que pueda representar sus viajes alrededor del globo, su deseo de habitar en un jardín y la diversidad cinematográfica de la vida domestica. Se resuelven dos casas sobre la misma parcela: la Casa Tobogán es una vivienda genérica de tres plantas sobre una ladera sur. El proyecto yuxtapone dos casas y un vacío que aloja el aparcamiento, una entrada y dos escaleras, funciona como un regulador térmico y construye un “travelling” entre un jardín, una follie y una gruta pintoresca mientras se cruzan las estancias de salón, gimnasio – sauna, bar, comedor y cocina. Una casa está organizada para habitar el suelo firme, sus costumbres y recetas. La otra, hecha a la ligera, se emancipa del suelo y queda en el aire sobrevolando a doble altura el jardín.

Zippppper Project

Five zippers, designed for YKK which manufactures and sells a diverse range of fastening products. In lieu of focusing on superficial finishings or decoration, it was important to take a step back and delve into the fundamental question, “What exactly is a zipper?”

Invisible outlines

We tend to perceive the existence and positioning of objects by subconsciously following “outlines”, and by distinguishing the “inside and outside” of these contours. This also means that objects with obscure outlines cannot always be identified as objects, and conversely.

House on the Cliff

Due to the steepness of the plot and the desire to contain the house in just one level, a three-dimensional structure of reinforced concrete slabs and screens adapting to the plot’s topography was chosen, thus minimizing the earthwork. This monolithic, stone-anchored structure generates a horizontal platform from the accessing level, where the house itself is located. The swimming-pool is placed on a lower level, on an already flat area of the site.

Balint House

A privileged place within a golf course near to Valencia is the starting point of this project. The proposal is drawn with elliptical traces which contain the program and maximize the possibilities of local urban law by minimizing the volumetric impact on the site.
