In architecture, a basic concept of housing tends towards an idea with a purpose to design and provide shelter for one or more inhabitants in a temporal period. This period can extend from the middle to the long term. The question is what terms would the architecture use when a dwelling responds to some inhabitants in short periods of time? And what available tools when the inhabitants are superabundance?

This temporary rental housing can give rise to the concerns due to the multiple links between inhabitants, temporal, spaces, and producers of intensity. The challenge is spatial practices closer to summer excess than to routine a situation of anonymous inhabitants, so this project focuses on the effects and actions presented for the inhabitants.

The distortion of the mirror or by the sensation of a greenish ceramic space can create an awesome effect in this rental housing where brightness floods everything. There are also doors that almost triple a human height and a light metal staircase that expands the spatial perception. In the bathroom, a unique form of the tiles is repeated on all surfaces of the floor, wall, and ceiling.
