The program is organized in a sequence that flows from a public multi-purpose saloon to a private residence, divided by a hallway fitted with a striking Barrisol lightening membrane ceiling.

 

 

The multi-purpose space can host an array of activities from dance, yoga or meditation to art events, workshops and screenings. Storage compartments hidden behind bronze mirrors and a continuous curtain gives the space the flexibility in configurations needed.

The private residence features warm red tones of ceramic tiles and fabric. The open kitchen extends to an intimate courtyard.
