We can understand the city without looking at it, if we look at one house. We will know the characteristics of urban elements where it is inserted.
That house has a dual condition: two facades.
Outside: it is hard, austere, protective against external environment, carefully closed and a filter for light.
Inside: it is open to the natural light and the open air due to its courtyard. It has a changing facade, it is different depending on the orientation, transparent/ translucent/ opaque and according to the degree of intimacy that needs the inner space. It is modulated and completely industrialized.
This project has two different uses: house and painting studio. They are near but not together (operate autonomously), and they share the same volume, but not the same scale. If you take a look from outside, you can see only a building, but indeed there are two building inside one.
The building appears to the public as a two floor building, but, actually it has four. The courtyard as an empty element that marks the lack of vertical limit.
