A phenomenon of special interest over the last decades has been the so-called “real state boom" and the creation of new landscapes, models and typologies that this has brought. The densification of population in large cities, along with greater economic power of a wealthy middle class, has required the expansion and proliferation of new homes from 0, in other words, occupying land and landscapes in the suburbs never before urbanized. These single family homes have been adopting different configurations, but what interests us particularly is the rowhouses. The new urban fabric generated by this model has a low density, geometric, rational paths, and with an extremely homogeneous appearance, responding to a mass production model (with cheaper cost that this entails).
This project comes with the intention of showing this homogenization in building and living, detached from a history and tradition that defines the character of a city. These models of production have resulted in a depersonalized urban fabric, with colonizing void spaces with repetitive and monotonous rhythms... patterns, templates and molds. But despite this stubborn attitude, there is an element beyond the control that slowly and subtly redefines the features of these blank faces covered with bricks: the accidental. There are the small changes that the environment and the use of housing itself are introducing, which allow us to differentiate a home from another, a family from another. As twin brothers whose faces diverge from one another over the years.
