It is an intervention inside an existing building
What is an interior intervention?
It is the type of intervention that takes place in an indoor space, related to the altering of buildings and other spatial configurations, by inserting or installing new alienated elements within an existing interior environment.
This typology requires a careful adaptation to the context, the form and the structure of the host space, in other to proceed with a surgical or parasitic intervention that revamps the attributes of the space, changing completely the way it is perceived and used by its users.
Usually, this tactical intervention is based on the colonization of the existing surfaces of the space, without altering the three-dimensional configuration of the building. By coating or covering the existing surfaces or even by inserting alien objects, placed on top of the existing surfaces, we are able to add aesthetical and programmatic features that can enhance the functionality of the interior space.
A playful & habitable landmark object arranged in a vertical way
A tower of cuckoo houses stacked on top of each other in the center atrium of a commercial space. Taking advantage of the only column that goes from bottom to top through the atrium, the design strategy consisted on dressing it with a system of houses structurally anchored to the column itself.
Color strings come up to the skylight creating a rainbow of colors.
The project is inspired in the spectrum of colors that appears when a light ray intercepts a crystal separating the light into different colors. It consists in 3 circles of activities intercepting each other in the main atrium of the shopping center. The circles are either domes, for climbing and playing, or seating features for resting.
