Appreciation towards Adrià Escolano y David Steegmann for providing the following description:

EL GUATEQUE住宅曾是一座有些奇怪的建筑:它初建于二十世纪中叶,是一座自建住宅;后来人们打算将其改造为一座独栋住宅,但受到2007年经济危机的影响,项目被迫中止。这一系列不得章法的改造导致建筑的室内空间失去了其原有的尺度感、形式和层次感,遗留下了一个支离破碎的住宅体量。

El Guateque starts on a Frankenstein pre-existence: a mid XX century self-built house modified by a refurbishment to transform it into a single-family house left unfinished due to the 2007’s economic crisis, leaving a series of interior spaces without scale, form and hierarchy resulting from multiple modifications, amputations and demolitions.

The project resolves the division of this proto-house into two independent units taking as a reference the operation of recreational devices, which organize the program from the categories of backstage, frontstage and spaces behind the scenes.

The project concentrates on the backstage, accumulating in a single technical piece of furniture, present on the three floors of the houses, the facilities, storage and necessary equipment in the house. The furniture’s closing panels, a suspended scenography, build a background landscape for the living space.

By customer demand, who are dedicated to decorating advertising sets, the front stage is understood as the remaining space and does not undergo any design action, keeping its morphology unchanged: they will activate this space from the furniture. The interventions, all under the same color tone, are limited to the opening of windows and doors, the floor, and the application of insulation and plaster on all visible faces.

The spaces behind the scenes category are those programs that remain outside the central space but complete the operation of the two houses. They are associations on each floor between the bathrooms and the outdoor and circulation spaces, which are solved as a whole with the same materiality.
