Architectural Conceptualization: Studio 1

Studio 1 is a workshop/studio where visual artists can work, create works of art, and exhibit them. The ground floor provides an open space that can be fully opened up, serving the purpose of exhibitions, meetings, or conferences. The upper level is reserved as a living space for an artist who wishes to stay for 3-6 months and fully immerse themselves in their work.


The Creative Process

1. footprint
2. initial volume
3. volume division
4. creation of corridors
5. volume definition
6. form detailing
7. delineation of terraces
8. opening of voids
9. final conceptual volume

The process illustrated in the previous diagrams does not define the final product. However, it serves as an initial exercise that will form the foundations of the project, through the exploration of the ideal function and form, taking into account the program, orientation, sunlight, immediate context, etc.

The purpose of this project is to connect the community through an artistic space. The area where the project is proposed holds significant cultural value since there exists a handful of historical monuments and important heritage builidngs that are highly frequented public spaces.

The final diagram showcases how this artistic gathering space fully opens up towards the public space to attract transient users, turning them into temporary users, and thus creating a dialogue between art and the community.

Spatial Form

The spatial hierarchy is defined by the architectural program of the project.

The form adapts to this program to provide pleasant spaces through an enveloping skin or lattice that promotes natural ventilation and lighting. Additionally, the triangular-shaped roof creates a spacious area that gives a sense of freedom.

The ground floor is reserved for public use and serves as a connector between the street and the public space. The first floor is exclusively for the artists. Providing them with access to a workshop and studio. Finally, the last level is isolated, as it is solely for the resident artist who temporarily resides there.

The activities that can be carried out within these spaces promote social interaction through creativity, culture, and art. All of this with the purpose of giving a voice to the neighborhood and attracting people from across the city to revive the area of study.
