This project redefines the concept of dividing wall, and turns this into a storage band that houses a whole personal universe. This band goes all across the dwelling characterizing a number of rooms; hall, living room, kitchen, study and bedroom.

The original layout, which was highly compartmentalized, becomes now void, creating this way a visual and spatial continuity that allows the light coming from the main façade and the two patios to reach all these rooms. Only service rooms stay more private.
