la Fleur

La Fleur was a 30 sqm micro-apartment with an upper terrace accessible from a retractable staircase. It was a space emptied of content, aseptic and mute, with a 2000’s bathroom and kitchen attached to the dark corner of the space.

The briefing was for a basic program of 2 that could be turned into 3 by the intermittent appearance of the couple's daughter. The project was solved with a single gesture based on segmenting the emptied space into two wings, in order to respond to possible programmatic collisions between parents and daughter. We expanded this tangency between the two areas by placing an intermediate piece that assumed part of the functional package of the house, compressing the negative spaces that were side by side of this bar, of about 2.5 meters each. The day program runs in one wing; on the other, the night program develops under a new light flying stairs that gives access to the terrace.
