Ateliers Ciudad de las Artes | Lucio Morini | Last Architecture


Argentinian studios Lucio Morini
and GGMPU Architects have completed a
campus housing artists’ studios in Cordoba, Argentina.

Called Ateliers Ciudad de las Artes, the project encompasses ten studios
organised around an interior plaza.

Each unit includes a double-height studio and living quarters, leading to
an open terrace on the roof.

Sliding glass panels allow each studio to be connected to the plaza
within, while the exterior features folding perforated metal shutters.

The following details are from Lucio Morini:

10 STUDIOS FOR ARTIST
These studios belong to the Córdoba Province City of the Arts, a campus
housing painting, sculpture, photography, and music schools.

They are to be lent to invited artists for short periods of time, so that
they can live and work in them and develop their work within a private realm,
while sharing their life and work experience with the students.

A continuous strip defining the edge of an interior plaza, it holds 10
studios -8 for painters and 2 for sculptors- with a nearly identical design.

Each studio is a 2 story unit with a double height, glass-enclosed space
facing either south (painters´ units) or north (sculptors´ units).

A large lifting glass door allows the interior of the studio to merge
with the plaza. The bedroom and toilet are located on the first floor, and
the living, dining and cooking space on the second, which allows their
expansion towards an open terrace.

The building is shaped by a sequence of parallel planes, a U-glass plane
towards the south, and a transparent glass façade facing north.

The latter is covered by a system of folding, perforated-metal shutters
which vary in transparency depending on the light conditions and position;
producing variations in the façade pattern.
