corde architetti: euroom

venice-based studio corde architetti has designed ‘euroom’, a small exhibition space in the backyard of a private residence. conceived as a display box for photographic works, the rectangular volume is an abstraction of the traditional gallery space compressed down to a 35 m2 area.
arranged on a bed of rocks, the box is wrapped in a milky translucent skin which prevents views into the interior space from the outside. a small rectangular opening at the foot of the outward-facing surface gives a glimpse of the activity within. an outdoor fountain runs water into a large metal basin which creates a very shallow reflecting pond that extends to the edge of the ‘window’, resulting in a dynamic visual connection between the gallery and the garden outside.

a diverse digital database that acts as a valuable guide in gaining insight and information about a product directly from the manufacturer, and serves as a rich reference point in developing a project or scheme.
the shape change in the wood is driven only by its characteristic shrinking during a decrease of moisture content.
the structure seeks to embrace the natural world, while ensuring that the dwelling maintains the privacy required by domestic life.
rather than housing its services and living spaces within the same volume, the santos bolivar santulan hotel divides each program between five structures.
the project is based on a simple idea: densifying the edge of the plot to create a park at the center.
