Residence in Apapa

Time as a dynamic of Architectural promenade, as in the horizontal journey through time, is experienced in the design for the house at Apapa, where the passage within the site unfolds through time and unveils different vistas to its inhabitants. From the entrance, which is an aperture in the wall with the building completely invisible to passersby on the street level, we pass through the portal onto an outlook of verdure, very unlike the street behind us.

At the end of this vista we see what appears to be a bungalow which begins to reveal its true nature as a two-storey building of considerable size when we venture further into the site.  Unfolding promenades through time is a vital principle of the architect’s design philosophy
