The architectural axes of this apartment crisscross each other with an "X " shape. . As an attempt to take advantage of this condition the interior design is resolved with an emerging lobby at the center  where the user is welcomed to every single are


Isolated from the main entrance this lobby also outlines its importance by becoming a visual axis with strong materials and iconic elements. The public areas use petreous materials and strong colors while the more intimate ones are softened by the use of lighter gradients and upholstered items. 


The illumination seeks to highlight the shadows movement. What remains dark throughout the day becomes light at night. The fabric curtains play a dual role of being an element of transition between areas and a lighten lamp when closed.
