Plane and ideas

- The most successful resource to lighten the attic space, with a marked gable roof and the presence of striking wooden beams, was to keep it diaphanous and with fair furniture.
- The predominance of white on all walls increased clarity and led to relief.
- Another great success was to avoid the partition walls and play with the decoration itself to delimit areas. The space houses the rest area, storage, a work corner, a living room and a bathroom with shower and large built-in dressing room.
