This is a studio-house for a couple of musicians, a pianist, and a guitarist. It’s a house made of paths and passages, where we can find the possibility to establish more or less direct relationships between each space, as the relation between the interior and the exterior. This idea of Casa-Floresta (House-Forest), lies on the symbiosis between spaces, in the relationship between concepts. It’s these relationships that bring us continuity, that is, they allow the permanent transformation of the dwelling, constituting a living space.
