The strip consists of a composition of extremely varied spaces. Interior and exterior spaces are all one: an extremely narrow house becomes an extremely wide house. The alley accommodates three elements: a block for storage whose roof slopes up from the street and provides a place to park; and two closed volumes, one block for a guest room and bathroom and one block that provides extra width locally to the two studios on the first and second floor. The last two volumes are hung on the glass façade, shutting in the exterior space and livening up the alleyway. It is lit by outdoor lighting that also allows the interior to be provided with any desired level of illumination. The use of electric lights inside is avoided.
As this is a private home, it is not open to visits. Please respect the privacy of the inhabitants and refrain from disturbance. Both projects are published in the El Croquis monograph nr. 86, including plans and interior images. The area of Borneo Sporenburg is well worth a visit for its architectural diversity.
