Domesticated Square 公寓,柏林, l’atelier Nomadic Studio

柏林的城市住房状况主要由 “Altbau “和 “Plattenbau “定义。Atlbau是19世纪末的古典建筑,有高高的天花板,厚厚的承重墙,以及由大型走廊和通道组成的无等级的房间结构。Plattenbau是战后的建筑住宅群,具有合理和正交的形状。Plattenbau的最大优点是,在大多数情况下,空间中没有结构性的墙壁,这就为改造提供了一个空白页。

Berlin’s urban condition of housing is mostly defined by “Altbau” and “Plattenbau”. The Atlbau is the classical architecture from the late 19th century with high ceilings, thick bearing walls and a structure of large corridors and passages with non-hierarchical rooms. The Plattenbau is the post-war architecture housing bloc, with rational and orthogonal shapes. The biggest advantage of the Plattenbau is that there are, in most of the cases, no structuring walls in the spaces, which gives the opportunity for a blank page for a renovation.

在这个案例中,公寓位于Plattenbau,在大楼的第四层,位于小区的尽头,提供了拥有三个外墙和三个方向的条件,即西、东和南。

In this case, the apartment is in a Plattenbau, on the 4th floor of the building and at the end of the bloc, offering the condition of having three facades and three orientations, west, east and south.

现有的70平方米的公寓包括两间卧室,一个封闭的厨房和一个小客厅,以及大约15平方米的通道。这个项目的主要挑战是程序性的:如何将一个两居室的公寓改造成一个三居室+一个办公室的公寓。

The existing apartment of 70m2 consisted of two bedrooms, a closed kitchen and a small living room, as well as about 15m2 for circulation. The main challenge of this project was programmatic: how to transform a 2-bedroom apartment in a 3 bedrooms + 1 office apartment.

该项目的核心过程包括将公寓的单一功能转变为一个项目,其中有一个由一系列附加项目形成的中央和开放的催化空间。其结果是一个驯化的广场,被一系列小的单一功能的房间包围。入口大厅,办公室,亲密的走廊,客房,厨房和阳台。它们都有一个直接通往中央广场的通道,并以不同的界面和关系相互滋养。

The core process of the project consisted on transforming the mono-functionality of the apartment into a project where there is a central and open catalyst space shaped by a series of additional programs. The result is a domesticated square, surrounded by a series of small mono-functional rooms: Entrance hall, office room, intimate corridor, guest room, kitchen and terrace. They all have a direct access to the central square and nourish each other with different interfaces and relationships.

同时,为了将项目的复杂性网格化,材料被明确定义为三条轴线。水平面是矿物(灰色浇筑的混凝土),横向是木材(哈希木和涂成黑色的中密度板),纵向是金属材料(不锈钢、铝和聚碳酸酯)。

In parallel, and in order to grid the complexity of the program, the materialities are clearly defined by three axes. The horizontals are mineral (grey poured concrete), the transversals are in wood (hash wood and painted black mdf) and those longitudinal are made of a metallic material (stainless steel, aluminium and polycarbonate).
