The development of the apartment was searched in all its dimensions, between interior and exterior spaces:

  • Transversal dimension, promoting transparency across the width of the apartment (sliding doors, platforms that blur the line between inside and outside).
  • Longitudinal dimension, marking a more intimate strip (dining room, kitchen, bookcase, bedroom 1) associated to the balcony and an open band (living room, hall, office room) around the loggia.
  • Vertical dimension, developing new volumes (skydome in shower room) in addition to the existing double height between the entrance and the floor.

From this open frame, different modular subspaces are articulated with each other, according to several devices:

  •  Moving parts, such as doors built into the furniture.
  •  Platform and / or ceiling (hall, shower room, dining room, kitchen, office room, bedroom)
  •  Fixed elements such as customized furniture headboards or the kitchen.
