The difficulty of the project was to create a space that was housing and gallery, without losing the scale and comfort of the domestic environment. The chromatic palette is neutral to enhance the paintings and photographs. Oak wood was selected for the flooring and macael marble for the bathrooms. Wood and marble that were originally present in the building.
