The very subdivided pre-existing ground floor, gives place to an open social area, defined mostly with plans, some of them curves. Entrance, living-room and kitchen, all connected, almost the same space.

The house is vertically linked by an omnipresent  spiral staircase, that connects the ground floor to an open attic, fun area. In between, the bedrooms floor.   The presence of the white and light, in opposition to the traditional darkness and chaos.
