Since 2013, antipodes café develops an homonym conglomerate of singular, temporary and site specific urban interventions which attempt to unveil as public space, specific moments in the encounter of the construction site and the already built city.
A series of projects which also delves into the definition of a gratuitously driven contemporary café and the use of this meeting point as a domestic space and vice versa.
Interventions can be differentiated into two main groups: Venues and Situations.
As part of this series, in late 2016 a group of venues called “antipodes café House” (or “æHouse“), was started, where typical parts, or function, of a generic house are placed on different encounters of construction sites and the city, and open to the public as gratuitously driven coffeehouses.
Each part of æHouse is temporary, movable and distant from the other ones in time and space. Hence the city becomes the corridors of this scattered house, where to traverse from venue to venue, from one activity to another.
