The interior space is delimited by sliding wooden walls, which allow integrating the rooms in different configurations according to the use and privacy required. The living and dining room can be integrated into a single space with the kitchen, also the kitchen can be integrated with the TV room. The TV room is configured as a transparent volume that dialogues with the terrace and the garden.
