Appreciation towards Fran Silvestre Arquitectos for providing the following description:


▼住宅位于巴伦西亚城市中心区域,the house is located in the centre of Valencian

The project consists of updating a house with 400 square meters of living and 400 square meters of terrace space in the heart of the city, with a characteristic distribution of the Valencian expansion district. This type of building with a high depth of block and central patios determines the possible layout, which responds to the functional requirements of the inhabitants of the house. The intervention aims to understand the small central courtyards as an opportunity to introduce light and the sky into the centre of the house.

▼白天活动空间朝向后方平台花园开放-起居空间及tv区,day area opens out to the rear terrace-the living room and tv room

▼起居室及餐厅,living room and dinning room

▼起居室与交通核心筒之间的空间,space between the central communication cores and the living room


The different rooms are organized attached to the perimeter of the floor plan, dedicating the area around the vertical communication cores of the building for the circulation of the house. The access to the house through the main distribution of rectangular proportions is arranged parallel to the facade. Perpendicular to it, arise separate corridors with different characters: one of a public character, from which it is possible to access the kitchen and dining room; the second, private, is at the same time a corridor and library of the studios to which it gives access. Both longitudinal corridors offer us a route of more than 50 meters in length, visually connecting the street with the back terrace and the patio block.

▼两条50多米的纵向走廊垂直于入口空间-两间工作室和小庭院外走廊,two longitudinal corridors are over 50 meters and perpendicular to entrance access-corridors on the side of two studios and a courtyard

▼小庭院为室内引入光线和天空景色,courtyard introduces the light and sky into the house

▼另一条位于厨房、小庭院和化妆室一侧的走廊,corridor on the side of kitchen, a courtyard, dressing room

The rooms look out onto the street, with small bay windows that existed in the original building. The day area opens out to the rear terrace, generating a continuity between the interior and the exterior of the house, where there are two landscaping planes as well as a sheet of water, which enable us to enjoy a garden in the middle of the city, that overtime is intended to be colonized with different varieties of plants that have in common the blue colour.
