THINK A SPACE FOR LIFE AND ART

When Gustave Courbet painted the painter’s workshop he said: “The world comes to be portrayed in my studio”, with it he described perfectly how it had to be the work environment of a painter: a place where the world fits.

Thinking a place for a painter to develop his creative activity requires two things: light and space. The Vedutist painters climbed to the top of the hills, there they spread out all their belongings, they inhabited that territory and then recreated it in the painting. There was a direct relationship between going up and receiving inspiration. This is something that comes from old. Already the people of Israel climbed the mountain to receive the revealed word. The height allows to observe over the rest, to have a new perspective.

The project foresees to locate a diaphanous space in the highest possible level to observe from there. And under this space, a place to live.

Sober and neutral materials will form a container that little by little will be inhabited by art. Any glimpse of project addition will take up space to contain the world of a painter.
