This project was based on the idea of ​​"pause": pause between commuting routes (home-work-home, home-school-home, etc.) where one color dominates: the yellow. As in the trilogy of chromatic lights os the semaphores, symbolizes a moment of pause, is among the movement and stopping.

The yellow as the predominant color, requires the interaction with neutral colors to highlight. Thus, the space is organized hierarchizing areas of public access with yellow and neutralizing (visually) the restricted areas with gray.
