Villaverde Kit

The proposal responds to a constructive logic based on a KIT. The process is bottom up oriented, starting from the smallest components, such as the structure, cladding and prefabricated WCs and kitchens. From its modular constrains, we play the game, assembling the pieces, and trying so solve urban problems, such as the volumetric articulation, the accesses and sun-lighting. Based on the strict modulation of 5.50 meters, we made several volumetric case studies on the site, refining the maximum floor area available. Finally, we choose to break the initial “L” into two prisms, opening the block and generating a more permeable urban fabric for Villaverde´s borough. Tthanks to this open corner, the inner courtyard receives more hours of sun exposure diagonally. Finally, aiming to avoid an anodyne result, a series of cuts and cantilevered volumes are modeled in both bars, always following the logic of the structural modulation.
