El Rinconcito

team Sebastian Duque (CO), Roubini Makridou (GR)

Our "site" is a residual L-shaped space attached to the main entrance of a languages-academy; a space no big enough to be a room, neither too small to become a closet. This space was conceived as pure solid, from which strategic-voids were carved-out to allow use: a big portion was first extracted for circulation purposes; then an ergonomically-defined cube was taken-off to form a kitchen facility, and finally a series of parallel slices and extra carving transformed the remaining volume into a sliding-bookshelf.
