Functionally, we changed the location of the kitchen, the back we went to the balcony open to the Tagus. The separation between the room and the kitchen is done by a piece of furniture that houses two sliding doors. The kitchen then form a fluid space in conjunction with the room, and then we get the full extent of the street facade in a single plan, interior punctuated by four bays to the balcony running the Tagus.
