decompartmentalization of the environments that were once fragmented did not
represents the lifestyle of the residents.


After renovation, kitchen, dining room, living room and balcony have become a single space, allowing different possibilities of use in day to day. The subtraction of part of the walls provided, besides the visual permeability, the best air circulation throughout the social area.

appliances, drawers, bar and living sofa. Already at night that furniture works as a
large lamp.
