2020. Competition for the construction of 41 homes in La Rambla San Joan, Badalona. Barcelona
The “Third place”, a term coined by the urban sociologist Ray Oldenburg (1989), is a space that is neither home nor work, or it is both at the same time. In our project, the third place is a space connected to the corridor, a flexible, intimate or common space, open or closed, which offers the user the opportunity to be first, second or third place.
The southern sun filters through the slits of the Majorcan in all the houses. The wind slides through every corner of the house from front to front. Sunning and cross ventilation in the 40 homes. That has been the challenge of the project.
