It was submitted to Architecture News Plus (ANP) by Manuel Cerdá Pérez | MCP Arquitectura. Project's program: Social housing. There are twenty two images for SVR 52 Housing.
An alternative dwelling. A typologically clear and convincing solution. Looking for a conventional scheme, both repeatable and adaptable. The concept on which the cell turns is the one of passing space, with multiple possibilities of circulation.
The house is divided into day zones, facing the street, and night use zones, facing courtyard. A second decision is the location of passage cores and bathroom, solving the inner and outer spaces with double paths around these.
The most important decision is the 2 to 2 grouping, thanks to vertical passage cores that give double access to the dwellings: Using the classical landing, or using the terrace of each type, as a house-courtyard at height.
The kitchen-laundry room is connected to the living room and terrace-courtyard through sliding panels. And it expands through a wardrobe towards the bedrooms. The interior paths flow around the kitchen wall skirting the bathrooms.
The bedrooms are linked to the day zones around the bathrooms, offering alternative paths, and they may be connected among them using sliding doors. The storage sides plan isolates the houses from the noise and from the walking shared areas.
Facing the doorways the total opening of the interior is reached, creating a unique space that flows between the two facings and offers cross ventilation to the rooms. The terrace controls the south west orientation thanks to canopies, so it can be used all year round.
