Occupying what used to be a store, this dwelling is conceived as a mix between the Mediterranean house and the phenomenological house as described by Gaston Bachelard: a space governed by the power of imagination.
Sunlight shines into the atrium through skylights, windows, and even an English courtyard-garden that works like an all- tropical urban oasis into which the entire lower level of the house spills, as in a dream.
Another challenge was to resolve the circulation elements. The solution was to concatenate a series of different atmospheres whose particular qualities result from a free interaction of geometry, lighting, and color. Warm finishes and colder, more industrial textures are placed side by side.
