The idea was born from the most elementary requests of the customer; a reformulation ofFlat that would allow smoother circulation, a more practical and visually clean environment without the need for furniture and decorations.
The proposal aims, firstly, to redefine the entrance and the connection between social and private space and, secondly, the direct relationship between the kitchen and the social area.
After the elimination of some elements from the previous layout (entrance hall that distributed the spaces of the apartment), we designed a series of wardrobes arranged along the perimeter, creating a baseboard that helps define moments and types, then this element continues incorporating the door that allows access to the sleeping area, transforming from the baseboard of the low cabinets to the top of the cabinets in the living area and the dining area.
This measure aims to establish occupation criteria for essential furniture (sofa and dining table), as well as to homogenize all compositional elements of the space, as well as to provide rapid storage capacity and avoid scattered objects around the apartment.
The private area follows the same logic of homogenizing the spaces, removing the wardrobes from the 2 bedrooms (to increase their useful surface) and inserting them in the hidden circulation area with the help of panels, with the exception of the master bedroom with sanitary facilities and wardrobe, which they have kept their original layout.
