A Coruña for rent?

¿Busca piso de alquiler? Leamos entre líneas:
Amplio y luminoso = vacío y pintado en blanco
Con mucho potencial = pide a gritos una reforma
Con encanto = Viejo, Viejo!
Funcional o acogedor = pequeño
Para parejas: pequeño
Especial para singles: pequeñísimo
Ideal para estudiantes: apenas habitable
Loft diáfano: Dormirás en la cocina
No dude en visitarlo: no sale bien ni en fotos
Suelos de parquet = el resto de los acabados no vale la pena comentarlos

El mercado inmobiliario de viviendas de alquiler es sumamente competitivo, está plagado de vicios y sus anuncios suenan, casi todos, a cantos de sirena. Nada de esto, sin embargo, carece de explicación: Los propietarios están obligados a invertir con mucha cautela, a intentar dar en la diana del gusto particular de un cliente potencial indeterminado y a proponer acabados y mobiliario a prueba de estilos de vida de lo más indolentes.

Pero aunque todo lo anterior sea cierto y cuando nos ocupa el diseño de viviendas para alquilar, podemos seguir dándonos el lujo de proyectarlas como si se tratase contenedores vacíos, mudos y anodinos? Podemos seguir afirmando que no hacer nada, no decorar, o no decantarse por estilo alguno siguen siendo las únicas maneras de gustar a todos o no desagradar a nadie?

Aun cuando los presupuestos constreñidos sean la norma impuesta por una altísima competitividad, nos abocan éstos irremediablemente a una estética descuidada, ordinaria o anticuada? Y peor aún, si pensamos en arrendatarios jóvenes, estudiantes o trabajadores, tenemos por fuerza que prescribir todo lo desechable, lo barato o de poca calidad?

Con su último proyecto residencial “Coruña for Rent!” Egue y Seta ha querido plantar cara e estos retos respondiendo a todas las cuestiones anteriores con un “no” rotundo pero alegre. La vivienda resultante intenta reconciliar ojos con bolsillos, proponiendo espacios de un atractivo decididamente joven, urbano y flexible, que ha resultado tremendamente viable en lo económico para los propietarios. Si ud. se ha imaginado a un hiper-barbado “hipster” subiendo su “fixie” hasta este ático, no le culpamos, pero lamentamos decirle que esta vivienda, realmente un bajo luminoso como un quinto, lo ocupa ahora mismo una lampiña pareja que no almacena trastos low tech.

Looking for a flat to rent? Read between the lines?
Spacious and bright = empty and painted in white.
Great potential = really needs to be renovated!
Charming = Old, really old!
Functional or cosy = small
For couples: small
Singles: really small
Ideal for students: barely habitable
Diaphanous Loft: You´ll sleep in the kitchen
Arrange a visit: Not even in photographs looks ok
Parquet Flooring = The rest of the finishes is not worth commenting.

The Real state market for rental housing is highly competitive, full of vices and most of its advertisement pieces sound like siren calls. None of these, nevertheless, lack explanation: Property owners are bound to invest with caution, they need to hit the target of particular taste of a potential but undetermined client, but most importantly they seem to be obliged to prescribe furniture and finishes tested against the most indolent of lifestyles

But, in spite of all these, when tackling the design of housing units for rent, can we continue to project them as if we were talking about empty, anodyne and mute containers? Can we still say that not doing anything, not decorating, or not opting for any choice are still the only available strategies when trying to be liked by all or to displease no one?

Even when tight budgets are the standard imposed by very high competitiveness, are we hopelessly doomed to prescribe sloppy, ordinary or out-dated interior design schemes? if we aiming for young tenants, students or workers, do we forcefully need to appoint everything disposable , the cheap or of the lowest quality?

With their latest residential project “Coruña for Rent” Egue y Seta wanted to stand up to these challenges and respond to all previous issues with a resounding but cheerful “no”. The resulting project attempts to reconcile eyes with pockets, proposing spaces of a decidedly young, urban and flexible appeal, which, money wise has proved tremendously feasible for the owners. If you´ve imagined a hyper-bearded hipster taking up his “fixie” to this attic, we can´t blame you, but feel sorry to say that this house, really at ground floor though bright as those in the fifth level, is currently the home of a barefaced smooth couple who does not love hoarding low tech junk.
