A description of the text provided by the architect. Espacioen Blanco was launched seven years ago. The building is located in a 5 x 22 meter section and has a structure that rejuvenates the center of the block, which is fully open to the city and has an open ground floor. A central void allows light to pass through, and flat stairs form a transparent link between spaces.
A four-story metal skeleton is connected around a central void that illuminates all spaces and separates the two volumes connected by bridges and stairs at different levels. Due to the height, root circuit, and play of movement of the structure, these 480 m2 structures are recognized as continuous cubic meters that can be adapted to multiple forms of use.
The building is committed to creating a space that explores unconventional forms of cultural production and the decentralization of the urban music scene. There are four floors that can be used for a variety of purposes, including an exhibition hall, auditorium, workshop space, and a small stage for concerts.
The architecture of the space supports internal and external relationships with the ground floor, which opens fully towards the street, visual relationships between all levels, and the simultaneous activity and use of the circular bridge as a socialized area.
In 2020, we revisited the project and increased the flexibility and opportunities for fragmentation to enable simultaneity of activities. Revitalized outdoor spaces, terraces and gazebos, increasing opportunities to spend outdoors.
