Dualistic Space House

Work of architecture
by Antonino Cardillo

Semi-detached house, Casa Santa, Erice, Italy — 1 May 2003



Scenario

The reinforced concrete frame of an existing house looks here like an abstract geography, an irrational place on and with which to rewrite space. Here we experiment with a dual and contradictory situation, bringing together primary volumes with fluid objects, in order to construct an organism from the juxtaposition of different but continuous and interconnected spatial places, as in a narration.
