Daylight is filtered by a silk and polyester sheer curtain suspended from a rail between the beam and the joinery, a changing and dynamic element bringing softness to the room.

In the background, an aluminum vapor barrier film forms a screen reflecting the colors and changing lights of the living room and the garden. This vibrating surface seeks to dematerialize the limits of the room.
