Ipographia versus ichnographia
From 1 room of 48 square meters to 4 rooms of 16 square meters: increase in surfaces, multiplication of space. Two wooden portals overturned and turned at 90 ° - in birch plywood panels - work this magic, also providing for the "disappearance" of the metal mezzanine, a heavy burden of the previous real estate RE-structuring, and returning "air" to the room. The space is so circular: from the living room, to the kitchen, to the study, to the upper bedroom: which overlooks the living room, the study, connected to the kitchen by a monochromatic yellow staircase "dug out" in the birch portals. A further minute portal in multilayer panels frames the entrance area and turns to "line" the bathroom by rotating orthogonally along the two vertical and horizontal axes.
