Three spaces that articulate amongst themselves.

A home saturated with memories is recovered where we find an overwhelming architectural potential and discover that the experimentation with space is possible.

First of all, we remove the superfluous in search of the structural and functional essence.

Corridors and passages are eliminated, served and servant spaces no longer exist, but rather a continuous and uninterrupted flow of actions and activities.
Divisions and fragments are reduced to the minimum and partitions are understood and designed as flexible planes that provide an opportunity to play with changes on opacity and transparency and generate a continuous space.

A Project that is articulated around three spaces that complement themselves within their function but they differ and are characteristic due to their materiality.

The Nave* will be a dynamic and flexible space of encounter, where a wide range of alternative activities could take place, and the constructive essence of the dwelling is revealed. The House* will be a protected and warm space where the user can modify the perception of the threshold and therefore contrast or blur the difference within the more private or public atmospheres. Finally, the Patio* will be a space for dreaming and evoking that provides air and freshness, making possible an alternative circulation, a playful experience.

Materials: Oak, steel, concrete and lots of color.
Concepts: Continuity, multiplicity and contrast.

Nos gustaba la casa
porque aparte de
espaciosa y antigua (hoy
que las casas antiguas
sucumben a la más
ventajosa liquidación de
sus materiales) guardaba
los recuerdos de
nuestros bisabuelos, el
abuelo paterno, nuestros
padres y toda la infancia.

We are eNSaLaDA !

A group of architects working and exploring new architectural fields.
Mixing and remixing, we are interested in new ways of approaching our environments and contexts, as it takes into account the complexity of relationships that generate them, from the individual to society, and focused on the understanding of architecture and urbanism as a piece of an interconnected puzzle.
Always working in-between fields, from urbanism to communication, from industrial design to art, from digital to pure analogic, we look for ways to expand our knowledge in order to keep on feeding our curiosity.

We believe in mixture.
