The project responds to the brief of a young (lady) urban professional working as a project manager in the AEC (Architecture, Engineering and Construction) industry and is characterized by honesty on two levels. A functional one by adapting intself to the 1950s apartment layout as found, and a conceptual one by not claiming to be more than it is ... Namely an Interior Architecture project designed and built with the most common materials in the industry used, however, in a different way. This way of working with the materials gives the project the force that our young client sought after through, for example, the design of the kitchen furniture, thought as a cantilevered object hovering 20cm above the floor level. Gamut (color palette) comes to strengthen the desired masculine character of the ensemble. One of the highlights of the project is the ensemble of interior carpenter doors with glass coloured boards. They act as an ambient agent through the way they filter both natural and artificial light, as well as a coding agent suggesting the destination for each of the apartments rooms.
