This room is the main living space with the sofa and the dining table facing the kitchen. However, it works as well as a small private concert hall that can fits all the instruments and friends, for the acoustics of the space it has various sound-absorbing panels along the walls. Furthermore, the openings are measured to calibrate the incoming light and avoid excessive illumination.

The more private side of the house is much denser and organized for the owner’s needs. It fits his bedroom and his soundproof room to compose and post product his records, both these spaces are facing the backside garden. Instead, all the services such as bathrooms, the closet, and the kitchen are located in the between space of these two opposite sides of the house in order to create a sound filter between the main room and the other spaces.
