A building from 1977, with large dimension and typical distributions of the time. A young family that wants to return to live in Figueres.
New home must be adapted to new life habits with a very tight budget. "We'll blow up the kitchen at once!" is how the project began. The heart of the house is rethought to have more open spaces. The kitchen, located in the central point, opens on all sides, becoming exposed to all the other pieces. But the privacy of the most reserved spaces must continue to be guaranteed.
A series of panels that run and pivot allow the spaces be modified to suit the users and, at the same time, guarantee privacy as appropriate. The scar caused by the works is framed by the warmth of the wood, like a common thread. The new pavement unifies all the spaces.
