MO HOUSE

Laura Ortín Architecture as Architects

The project was conceived just when our bodies and after a few days our minds were confined. Could this new house hold up another confinement? We wonder. This will be perhaps from now on the new question to project. Because if an architecture is good because it is flexible, bright and healthy, it will endure confinement and any future situation. Because it will be adaptive, evolutionary and caring.

We find a flat from the 80s in the center of the city. Extremely compartmentalized and organized with hierarchical spaces typical of another era, of another way of living.

Natural light was paralyzed too soon, circulations forced too unnatural movements and the different rooms were for only one activity.

 Mens sana in habitat sano.

Three things were the obsession to solve: outdoor space (more terrace), flexibility of use (interchangeable rooms), self-care spaces (teleworking, relaxation) and environmental quality (natural light more hours, healthy materials).

We force conflict (understood as something positive), we provoke our own exoticism and evocative architecture that would forget the continent and recreate a careful and delicate content.

The house is traversed in an organic and natural way and the transitions between rooms are proportional.

We got a healthy environment with natural materials: bamboo wood, lime paints and chalk lacquers. They make up a home with a "sssh" effect, in calm, in peace ...
