Text description provided by the architects. The uprooting from family relationships results being a common condition of contemporary life, losing affective bonds. Hence, from this project we address the construction of ways of living not only as social manager, but as a enabler of human connections revealing unexpected relationships that go beyond immediate utility. We want to generate the discovery of new senses, transforming the necessary in desire. Inhabit propitiate new ways of looking, according to Heidegger. “We are as we live in”.

So, our first approach is through basic shapes, a prism: as container working the essential, where complexity is acquired by the estructure's relationships that we favor for interaction among its members. Thus, we give concession to design beyond primary gestures that move away from formal reminiscences, looking to not betrayed the essential.

The project seeks to press to its limits the dwelling experience through dualities at different places to ensure levels of perception and interaction, which counterpose from intimate to collective, full to empty, internal to external, core to peripheral, expected to unexpected, continuous to fragmented. These give order to potential relationships.

We seek to deepen into ways to occupying space to enable an affective and evolutionary  structure in time. We attempt to extend beyond physical boundaries of the buildings, through relationships that we establish with the sky, intimacy and collective.  We try to debunk the intimate as an inner private space, as the farthest and isolated refuge. In the project, the vacuum occupies periphery (vulnerability area) through courtyards that made a continuous fragmented  which in its relations with indoor enclosures allow different experiences understood from dual relations and posible gradations. Thus, the void assumes negotiation: interior - exterior, intimate - collective, core - periphery, continuous – fragmented, allowing us to establish complex connections: spaces and visual addressed diagonally  and in movement between enclosures and courtyards, overlapping spaces, tridimensional twinned perforations which crossing enclosures, visual depth. We do not take for granted any relation, we seek them to be woven unexpectedly. There is a constant discovery.

The footprint from the subtracted will be reveal by the change of materiality: wood. Concrete and its texture allows to have multiple narratives through shadow over the material.
