在THE FRAME系列中,摄影师Hiroshi Sugimoto着迷地拍下了大海的场景。在他的照片中,大海的天空如同两个厚重的体块,被一条水平线分割。公寓的设计将Sugimoto的照片刻入了建筑空间,创造了一个框住海景的房间。

THE FRAME / Hiroshi Sugimoto captures the ocean almost obsessively. In his pictures, a horizontal line separates two dense volumes; sea and sky. This flat is a Sugimoto picture carved into architecture, a room which is a frame for looking to the sea.

The contrast when one enters the flat is disconcerting. There is a radical difference between it and the rest of the building, an example of a typical Costa del Sol block from the 70’s. From within the gaudy balusters and peeling paint, the subtraction of the room forces one to turn their attention to the distant horizon.

Otega y Gasset曾说过,“想象的岛屿由真实环绕……现实的墙壁必须突然终结,让人们迅速陷入艺术的虚幻之中。然而,二者之间亦需要缓冲,画框便起到这一作用。”在这间公寓里,建筑是让人能够注视艺术的画框,大海即是画框中的艺术品。

Ortega y Gasset said works of art were “imaginary islands surrounded by reality on all sides. (…) The real wall must end suddenly, radically, so we are plunged immediately into the unreal work of art. There is, however, need for some buffer. This is the frame.” In our case, architecture is the frame for contemplation of the work of art, which is the sea.

On top of this, there is a break in the frame to separate an external terrace, and the internal space. The linoleum floor is warm and mitigates noise. Along with the acoustic ceiling panels and high efficiency window frames, the space is a quiet bubble within the building. The grey color throughout the inside contrasts with the vibrant exterior.

The existing internal partitions were demolished and replaced with a single curtain rail, which snakes through the ceiling. By sliding the curtains around, one can completely change the spatial perception of the flat, making it feel much larger than its 50 square metres. A large living room, an intimate bedroom, a secondary guest bedroom, a dining area… Different atmospheres and spaces, generated by the interplay of translucent textile with itself. The ever-changing Mediterranean light is filtered as it enters the flat and interacts with the curtains.

By rupturing with its context, separating oneself acoustically, and turning the gaze to the views, the feeling is of being transported somewhere else.
