odD House 1.0 located in Quito, Ecuador was conceived as a therapeutic experiment for a client suffering from bipolar disorder, and a change of lifestyle for him and his family after living in a rustic home for over 30 years.
Facing very specific demands from the client and realizing the complexity of his condition, the architects conceived the house as a therapeutic vessel. This was done by encouraging the client to be an active part of the design and construction process (active stimuli) and by meticulously designing each space and every element within that space by applying the concept of serialism; pattern in the floors, ceilings, and walls gave every space a different rhythm and characteristic. These detailed elements of repetition/replication became visual means to stimulate the client’s mind, leveling his mood. (passive stimuli).
