Project Okerstrasse or Casas Cabañas is a multifunctional housing extension. The project consisted in an annexation of two traditional typological houses constituting a small spontaneous collective of different dimensions and colours.
Together with the architect Jonathan Schuster, we worked on this extension project in the town of Niedersachsen, Germany. The client asked for a multifunctional space to develop different activities from private to professional, as the base of her therapy sessions.
According to the multifunctional purpose of the extension, each volume allows different functions; the pink one is the primary house were all basic necessities are covered – kitchen, dining room, bathroom and bedroom- and the green one is the multifunctional and social space prepared to be lived, enjoyed and shared changing due to each specific necessity. The new extension consists in the annexation of two traditional typological houses’ structure which grows from the main house, constituting *a small spontaneous collective, emphasized by the fact that the volumes have different dimensions and colours. They move to allow to generate an outsite terrace towards the garden with privacy enough in the plot to be enjoyed by different users.
