Studio Conversion by External Reference Architects

External Reference: ‘Domestic space very closely affects the user, and has been discussed extensively over the history of interior space. At present, new lifestyles, new families and more flexible professional routines, have favored the emergence of a unique user profile, complex and with clear ideas about their needs, which demand genuine domestic typologies. This is the case of the inhabitant of this both residential and work space: An industrial designer, active art director and very involved in the world of fashion, advertising and performing arts in general. Our user raised the idea of devoting a warehouse to hold a recording studio, design space, meeting room, room for auditions, castings and fashion shows, and finally, a home.’

‘Therefore, the project acquired exceptional guidelines. We were forced to manage contact between extraordinarily collective-use spaces (Think of the people involved in a shoot) and others with a private and personal use. Hence the spirit of all design decisions, giving shape and structure to a domestic space that seeks, at all times, to be understood also as a space to share. In this sense, the socially outgoing and energetic personality of the user is reflected in the project. His friends and contacts are very important to him so their presence and the needs they present also become part of the briefing, the space becomes a kind of inhabited scenery where public and private, interact with few apparent limits.’
