project team: a10studio, Mariano Arias-Diez.
A project for the remodeling of 2 different commercial spaces, asking to join them together into a bar in downtown Cabo San Lucas (Mexico).
The project explored the redefinition of the "ground", the manipulation of the ground surface, transforming an element that carries a fixed code into an active field, complex and mutant. The ambiguity between the surface and space, between bi-dimension and tri-dimension, is perhaps one of the constants of the project as an alternative to the contrast between the ground and the architectural object.
The surface is not only the envelope of space, but also what defines it, as it emerges in between the both of them a close relationship. Also exploring the ambiguity between ground and envelope, instead of opposing them as is commonly done, we exploit the indeterminacy that exists between them.
