  • Transversal dimension, promoting transparency across the width of the apartment (sliding doors, platforms that blur the line between inside and outside).
  • Longitudinal dimension, marking a more intimate strip (dining room, kitchen, bookcase, bedroom 1) associated to the balcony and an open band (living room, hall, office room) around the loggia.
  • Vertical dimension, developing new volumes (skydome in shower room) in addition to the existing double height between the entrance and the floor.

  •  Moving parts, such as doors built into the furniture.
  •  Platform and / or ceiling (hall, shower room, dining room, kitchen, office room, bedroom)
  •  Fixed elements such as customized furniture headboards or the kitchen.
