A typical balustrade house with double view – over the street below and the gallery.
A classical structure: two rooms with windowless bathroom in the middle. The house is divided in three, living area-bathroom-bedrooms; the project dwells on the original installation, but develops the ‘bathroom’ theme in more contemporary terms: juxtaposed to the toilet, disarticulated in little areas (sink, appliances and shower) we find a cloak-/laundry-room.
The bathroom area is actually a unit filter between living room and bedrooms, allowing a deep separation between the two areas, characterized by a very different degree of privacy.
The view over the gallery can thus be imagined as much wider, making it easier to appropriate those external spaces which originally belong to balustrade houses.
