Set in Seville, Spain, one of the most important UNESCO World Heritage sites in southern Europe, our studio investigates the various typologies of urban living that bear witness to the expression and synergy of Christian and Muslim cultures forming the unique identity of Seville today. Specifically, and from a choice of three urban voids, our brief is cohabitating and working, designing eleven family homes and incorporating businesses, communal facilities and a public space appropriate to the local neighbourhood.
Lectures and workshops hosted by The Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de Sevilla set the context for intense field-work research which formed the basis of our studio’s thesis projects; the culmination of which aimed to reconcilliate the inner forces of the type of living chosen with the external forces of the city.
