0710 Duplex PZG (2013) by n232 Arquitectura

Project Architects: Victor Garcia, Martin Sáez
Engineer: Riojaproject

Location: Arnedo, La Rioja, Spain

This duplex penthouse is inside a new building located in Arnedo, Spain. The original plan of the dwelling did not comply with the client expectations and the lifestyle of a young couple. After an intensive research and several meetings, the resolution of the architectural challenge was well enough reached.

The spatial solution is not conventional, due to the flip of the floor use found in a traditional duplex. The main access and social area are in the upper level, while the bedrooms and more private zone are in the lower one. Turning upside down the levels not only modifies the use of them, but also changes completely the configuration of the space of each one.
