New concepts of flexible, transformable, eco living space, in order to understand the new, functional and structural needs of the individual

Check House 2021 | Optical illusion and disorientation are the terms that characterize this project. The purpose induces reflection in the passage between one space and another, between one environment and another. Recognizing the spatial dimension, not automatically but according to a considered perception, becomes a mode that allows understanding of every aspect of the domestic place. In the checked house nothing is taken for granted and everything is marked by an incessant and repetitive rhythm. The picture refers to our childhood, is a simple and familiar element. In the quaderno a quadretti children draw rhythmic forms, simple and complex, repeated to infinity, with the intent of acquiring the ability to confront and measure with space, with its construction and size. The house is organized through a path that links, according to a sequence, collective spaces with private ones. Large windows allow the light to penetrate in a soft way with the aim of emphasizing through strong contrasts the incessant repetition and texture. Altro_studio , the philosophy behind the studio’s work altro_studio was founded in 1998 by a group of people prepared to work in an interdisciplinary environment. From the very start, altro_studio began to research movement as applied to the home, ranging from temporary housing to major urban projects. We mainly

addressed new concepts of flexible, transformable, eco living space, in order to understand the new, functional and structural needs of the individual. For this and other reasons, altro_studio focused its research on new technologies (mainly linked to automated systems) and innovative materials, and investigated the problems of environmental sustainability. Our aspirations Whereas architecture is considered a perfect synthesis between art and science, we aspire on the one hand to facts and phenomena close to the real world surrounding us (expressed by new techniques and materials) and, on the other, to interdisciplinary studies involving music, philosophy, literature and, above all, the figurative arts. Art has always expressed political, cultural and social thought and has always been considered as avant-garde compared to architecture. Figurative art has always been an essential part of architecture. This is the tool, which distinguishes a true architect from a simple technician of architecture. This has been proved by the research of Le Corbusier, Mies van der Rohe, Frank Gerhy and Zaha Hadid, in which the artistic aspect becomes the matrix for their architectural works. Our ambitions come from closely observing the world around us and projecting it into the future. Our objective is to offer concrete answers to the numerous problems, which affect the real world in which we live. We are speaking of phenomena, which involve the entire planet, such as immigration, mobility and complexity, or of natural phenomena due to climate change, such as desertification, hurricanes and the rise in water levels, or even events, such as virtual communication via the creation of networks, computerisation and the computer. Lastly, we aim to concentrate our observations on the transformations produced by social change in recent decades, and on new ways of living public and private, collective and individual space.
