Casa RG by ES-arch:
“Our project is a recovery of the attic of a portion of an apartment creating.
The apartment developing is created up of 2 blocks and a connecting entire body. The 2 blocks appear in a different way even although they have been both created in the 60s. Our block used to be inhabited by the families doing work on the ground floor grocer’s.
The existing block has a complicated strategy, due to the developing within a narrow location. Folds, bevels and narrowings are a consequence of the narrow distances, indeed they had been not created for imaginative or architectural reasons.
Even though the main constructing is a separate one and is standing on a flat terrain, the renovated block is just ahead of the climbing Bernasconi street (through Bernasconi).
The developing has a compound shape. It broadens up northwards and has a straight side even though and westwards it has a series of folds and bevelled edges.
The major stage of our project was the restructuring of the pitched roof and its slope.
Our answer was the rotation of the hipped roof (north/south). In order to have windows southwards the hipped roof was rotated so that the total building gains a proportioned and contained shape. Its layout was furtherly refined thanks to the insertion of a chimney.
We initial proceeded by redefining and regularising the volume, trying to uncover a stability in spite of the unique irregural form. Just a tiny intervention and the result is a new stability in form and volume.
The muddy colors of the wood and of the surrounding context influenced our selection of the materials in purchase to give the constructing some compactness. That’s why we chose thin kerlite tiles. The muddy colours and the tile covering strenghten the compactness of the constructing.”Floor Strategy
