Distances with the existing. Distances between materials. Distances between spaces. Distances between objects. Distances between times.
The places identified for the Vonna Studio project are understood by neighborly relations, proximity, distance, adhesion, accumulation, in other words, by positions.
The intervention on existing materials focuses on recovering their "gross" qualities. Terrazzo tiles are sanded. False ceilings are removed and the concrete skeleton of the building and the traces of his past appears. The space has been stripped from its original fittings so the surfaces reveal its folds, its overlapping accidents: a perception of time looking excavated.
The new is separated from the existing. Thus, carpentry showcase is attached to the facade anchoring from the outside, "showing" the existing structure, appropriating their qualities, disassociating from it and puttingin value. Execution, assembly and detail are a letter of internal intervention.
Carpentry folds to distancefrom the street and embrace the client in a "domestic" space. Its delicate materiality distance from bare space around, and the movement of the street. The marble defining the socket interior window overlooking the outside to invite input.
Dialogue that occurs between the existing and the proposed means from respect to distances. The new materials are attached to existing, by connecting elements as brass profiles in the quartering of marble, wood slats props partitions, or anchors into studs pine furniture showroom samples.
Therea time writing, in which each line can be thoughtas a boundary between two times branching and cross endlessly. The project juxtaposes in the same space two successive cuts, revealing the space between them: a temporary space, in which the stroke thickness acquires an architecture built from the experience accumulated in the lines.
