The initial design approach involved the demolition of all existing walls that rigidly delineated the rooms.

Instead of doors, the spaces are now separated through ceiling lowerings, lines of color, and custom-made furniture.
A perspective view encompasses the entire space in its entirety, from one facade to another.

Like small brushstrokes on a blank canvas, the color doesn’t define the main functions of the dwelling but rather the voids: the spaces traditionally considered liminal gain their own importance and become a series of chromatic and semantic references within the apartment.

Against a neutral background, alternating warm and cool tones conceptually highlight the dining area, a desk corner in the living area, the volume housing the corridor and bedroom wardrobe - where the original terrazzo tiles have been preserved as flooring - and the small wardrobe/study cabin in the sleeping area.
