Casa BS88

Luis Ridao as Architects

The house is located in the Nervión neighborhood of Seville, within an urban fabric where all kinds of individual and collective dwellings currently coexist. Our plot is narrow and deep, between party walls, with a single facade to the street 7 m wide.

The owner's initial wish was to have a rooftop garden for family enjoyment. Instead, it was decided to place the desired garden as a unitary part of the daytime area of the house, the whole occupying the entire first floor, from the open patio at the back of the plot, to the access street, to the one that leans out and looks.

This decision automatically conditioned the functional structure of the rest of the building. The second floor houses the master bedroom. The children's bedrooms are located on the ground floor, in the basement a multifunctional hall, the storage room and the facilities are located.

Together with the previous garden, two patios -the rear, landscaped with three callery pear trees, and the central one, landscaped with bamboo-, plus the green roof, interweave and multiply the relationships that exist between the different spaces.

The facade to the street only shows the hole that opens the garden on the first floor to the city and the large metal plinth that combines accesses and technical cabinets.

The construction of partitions has been executed in drywall, both interior and exterior, and the exterior skin of the building has been covered with a fine white mortar. The interior floors have been made with oak wood and sawn cut phyllite, a stone that has also been used in bathroom and toilet walls. Inside, the doors and cabinets are made of lacquered wood, a finish that has also been used to cover the interior walls with doors, creating smooth and homogeneous surfaces.

Outside, in the non-landscaped pavements and in the vertical finishes, iroko wood slats have been used and the pool basin has been covered with glass mosaic tiles.

To control solar gain and the desired privacy, a system of awnings and screens blinds has been designed that protect some glazing and allow the opening to be closed to the street.
