Seis casas, experiencia de lo cotidiano

Seis casas en Hintonburg, Colizza Bruni Architecture

El desarrollo de relleno residencial Hintonburg SIX es un ejemplo de mirar hacia atrás en la historia de un lugar, con el fin de estar informados sobre la forma de avanzar en el presente. Hintonburg SIX también ilustra cómo los tres niveles de diseño, es decir, urbano, arquitectura y paisaje, pueden y deben existir de manera simbiótica.

La historia del lugar

La aldea de Hintonburg se estableció en 1893 y se anexó a la ciudad de Ottawa en 1907. En el momento Hintonburg fue considerada como el primer suburbio industrial de Ottawa. Inmigrantes franceses e ingleses fueron atraídos a la zona debido a viviendas accesibles y la proximidad a las fábricas y terminales ferroviarias donde muchos de los habitantes de Hintonburg trabajan. Esto era el vecindario de un hombre de trabajo. La asequibilidad se logró mediante la construcción de su propia casa, pequeña y simple. El carácter de las calles de Hintonburg fue el resultado de la construcción de casas de dos pisos cerca de la calle. La escala del espacio de calle fue animado por terrazas y porches, íntimo y casual.

La descripción de los hechos

El desarrollo en la esquina de la calle Armstrong consta de 6 casas nuevas, cuatro viviendas unifamiliares y dos casas apareadas para reemplazar una antigua vivienda que ocupaba el terreno de 600 m2. Cada casa es de aproximadamente 100 m2 y está construida en un terreno de 100 m2. Los edificios son de 2 plantas, con una tercera planta parcial; cada uno tiene un espacio de equipamiento en la azotea, una sector de estacionamiento.

El diseño

A nivel de diseño urbano, tomando como referencia de la forma histórica construida de la ciudad, los edificios están situados en los límites del terreno sobre ambas calles.  Se trata de viviendas de dos plantas, pequeñas en escala. El coche se ubica cómodamente en la composición general del sitio… se acomoda sin fastidiar.

El jardín sobre la calle no es grande pero suaviza el plano macizo de edificios y aceras. La combinación de la piedra del sitio, arbustos, árboles, grava y jardineras de acero,  refuerzan la idea de collage en la arquitectura. Los espacios de esparcimiento privados se definen por pabellones revestidos en chapa de acero, marcos de acero y listones de cedro. Esta estrategia de cercado es permeable, y permite que la luz y el aire fluya entre los espacios al aire libre. Destellos inesperados de árboles, plantas, cobertizos y muebles de exterior se revelan a través de los listones de cedro.

A nivel  arquitectónico, el diseño puede describirse como un collage de colores, formas y texturas. Los materiales de construcción y el jardín hacen referencia a la herencia industrial de la zona. Caminando por ambas calles, el peatón experimenta una serie de superficies superpuestas y fragmentados: revestimiento pintado de negro y metal, vidrio, el naranja oxidado del acero, la madera natural. La composición global es dinámica. De esta manera, el ojo es estimulado y comprometido. La experiencia en la calle a pie se anima aún más por la “componente” de la vida cotidiana visto a través de las amplias ventanas: muebles, plantas, obras de arte y habitantes.
