1 An interspace has the basic function of mediating between the inside and outsid.
2 The mediation includes very important factors such as light, temperature, view.
3 The relationship that exists Between inside and outside, focuses on three factors
3.1 First, the search of protection from the sun often starts as an extension of the architectural form towards the outside
3.2 Second, the sense of inhabiting an actual space –whilst being outdoors- is primarily achieved with the help of recognisable architectural elements.
3.3 And third, a close link to the open environment is given by allowing direct views to both the immediate and distant surroundings
4 Both geographical and climate conditions set specific challenges for local architecture when coping with the external environment
4.1 One of the climatic challenges is to provide shelter to people from incident solar radiation when they are outside in the daylight
5 According to Spanish architect Rafael Serra (2000) -when talking about building in hot and dry regions-, such protection should make a distinction between sun and shadow, and should also become a recognisable space (e.g. a yard) that reconciles architecture with the outside
6 case studies in this research seem to accomplish three basic conditions as previously mentioned
6.1 first, they mediate between inside and outside; second, they provide shelter from the sun; and third, they allow views to the surrounding context.
7 The use of intermediate spaces generally considered a solution architecture to address conditions in climates ends
7.1 For example, when it comes to the desert, many authors examine the types (runner, garden, etc.) used in buildings to withstand the high daily temperatures, especially outdoors.
8 is had an analysis on the use, size becomes, configuration and the ability to generate shadow.
9 For architects, a given space may achieve an in-between condition if it mediates between two different environments, for instance. Furthermore, one of the above environments can actually be located outdoors.
9.1 First This enables architecture to be seen as a geometric place that grows towards the “uninhabitable” nature, as referred by Chilean architect Germán Del Sol (1997) about building under such extreme conditions; it also acts as a meeting point with the landscape
9.2 econd, the feeling of inhabiting an actual space, and not simply staying under the protection of a canopy or a sun screen
10 Some building elements –or the building form itself- can help to create the conditions where inhabitants can realise this affinity for space once outside
11 One important feature from external corridors -referred to connecting inside rooms with the outside-, is the continued floor level that prevails between those two different conditions
12 Amongst in-between typologies, the open yard -or patio- may also appear as a local example of mediation between buildings and their surrounding environment
12.1 Serra (2000) describes the patio as a resource that generates a protection from the sun in warm regions whilst it relates architecture with the outside at the same time.
13 Although one of the basic benefits of an open yard can be that of having daylight gains inside, its value as an in-between space seems to be supported by the idea of including a glimpse of the outdoor environment from within buildings in order to create connection, or as Del Sol’s previously cited concept, a meeting point with the landscape
