Text description provided by the architects. In this intervention the design challenge was to give to a small apartment of 28 sqm the living comfort of a bigger one. Minumum but livable service areas were designed to leave as much space as possible to the main room.

The main space is simple and clean, a box labeled by the side walls paneled (batipin - plywood) and by a large window overlooking on the terrace to extend as much as possible the interior space to the outside.

The two "active" walls  in batipin hide all the  furnitures, the folding double bed, sliding doors of the bathroom and of the kitchen, a closet and the compartment for the air conditioning.

The living area can be lived with great flexibility and change its appearance during the day and by the uses.

Bathroom and kitchen are two monochrome blue boxes , while the living area is characterized by white surfaces to boost the brightness and bring out the texture of the wood walls.
