The project starts from an open space with a clear and concise geometry, which is transformed into a habitable space through the compression and expansion of bands that run along its entire perimeter. These elements provide it with spatial tension, thus configuring the environments necessary to house a home in its minimum expression.
The scheme is very clear, “full” on the perimeter as server space and “empty” in the center, as a living space that feeds on the perimeter. Each wall has an objective and a function generating a unique central room where life takes place. The surface of each one of them shows projections and entrances projected as rooms of the different scenes of daily use.
In a 360º panorama from right to left, they are as follows: rest area, formed by a wall that joins the sleeping area and the resting area; bathroom area, which also highlights an image of an urban environment from HISBALIT’s Identity collection, which allows the reproduction of real photographs that adds depth to the space; kitchen and dining area, where you will find everything you need for its use and finally a green area with aromatic plants that allows you to disconnect from day to day and enjoy an exceptional area.
The architects perceive this house as a whole, a set. The use of space in a different way creates a unique concept without forgetting its practicality and comfort, without borders.
A large part of the project is covered by HISBALIT glass mosaic. The intention of ZOOCO has been to create a unique and incomparable space in which the visitor to Casa Decor enters it and feels immersed thanks to the coatings, the touch of wood on the floor, and the effect produced by a ceiling covered in the mirror which causes an enveloping effect.
The play of colors and different mosaics provide a point of union. The round Stone model, in matt white, covers the walls. In the projections you can see different shades of green from the Unicolor collection in a hexagonal format, the darker tones located in the lower part of the house and the lighter ones towards the ceiling, thus staining the four walls and generating a color effect of double gradient that creates a warm atmosphere.
