Imagined from the beginning as a private museum with multiformat content, SOLO is a space in permanent change. The design of the place is developed in parallel with the construction of the art collection that it houses. It is a space that is intimate and collective at the same time. It is at once a workspace, a stage for the enjoyment of leisure time, a meeting point, a mechanism to connect people in all possible conversations.
The project is based on a system of use that unfolds into rooms and corridors; two elements with different programs and materials. With proportions and neutrality ideal for displaying art, the halls are rooms whose different dimensions turn them into a showcase of architectural experiences, even though they are all built with the same resources – polished cement floors, plasterboard walls painted white, framework and joists of exposed concrete and uniform illumination. The corridors function as an urban system of streets and squares – with grey concrete floors, walls of industrial panels of cement and wood shavings, and dramatic lighting – that reclaims the urban culture to which the collection is devoted.
