Sometimes we dig up foundations only to cover them up again. A safe certainty to determine what´s showable in the pre-existings. This extension, a wooden finished container, side toped with big glass plans, answers to a simple program possible to become a private house.

It is an open space with the pavement equiped, ready to receive the adequate facilities (bath and kitchen modules) to become a single person house.

We design a light metalic system which permits ample overhangs, freeing up the interior space from other structural elements or walls. The transmition of forces from the tube-box is supported on the powerful existing stone wall.

    You have GOT to be kidding me!
    A TUBE….. with glass walls at either end and no windows along the sides!
    And Florescent tube lights on the ceiling.
    That’s ridiculous.
    That’s NOT Architecture.
