DO UT DES - domestic device
The project incipit always starts with bargaining between the different resources that may present themselves. Economic constraints, regulatory constraints, spatial needs, continuity of materials, new use requirements, energy needs, are all resources that are part of the project, which from time to time retreat or conquer, dominate or succumb, shifting weights and outcomes.
The design concept to become real, from theory to artifact, identifies bargains, sacrifices the superfluous in favor of the fundamental, a DO UT DES. In this sense, the design of a renovation becomes a negotiation of resources that shows the nature of the building, declaring it in exposed structure, missing finishes, saving materials and reusing them.
