CampoTaller as Design direction and construction

The X16 Studio is an exercise of recovery and partial intervention in a modernist house of the 50s. A rehearsal room whose approach interferes only what is strictly necessary for the appropriate functioning of the house in coexistence with the new studio and its spectacular garden. The main goal was to resolve a space with private vocation, while willing to be public sometimes. Through a series of punctual actions around the project, articulation issues were solved between the intervened and the preexisting areas.


Actions: Reformulating circulations around the studio through sliding boards that enlarge and shrink the space; epoxy resin and volcanic rock floors, windows, closure and opening of bays. Suitable lighting for the execution of activities, extension of the total height, furniture design, a new warehouse.


The purpose of the proposal is to cause a dialogue between the intervention and the existing parts, a contrast that allows the user to distinguish two stories around the building.
