Urtaroak – Contest

Urtaroak – Contest

Winners of the Furniture and Interiorism Contest of Kutxa Ekogunea in cooperation with the architect Edorta Subijana.

The proposal Urtaroak parts of the need of giving to the future Kutxa Ekogunea center a distinctive and coherent interior setting. The typological diversity of built elements relating that center complicates this intention of understanding it as an unique building. Therefore, it consists in creating strategies to weave a single system, both physically and conceptually. In our approach, due to the special condition of resolving those spaces, with elements halfway between interior and exterior, we understand that the pavement has an enormous potential to bust barriers and connect interiors and exteriors, new constructions and pre-existence…

In order to enhance the physical bonding that provides continuity on the pavement we have tried to add a conceptual link between spaces. A thread that is just an excuse to work as naturally as possible the problem of the transitions. The seasons, or Urtaroak, are parts of a whole, with fuzzy boundaries and yet with particular characteristics and identity.
