The concept that was the common thread during this renovation apartment It is divided around the living room, L-shaped, and delimited by the use of a solid wood floor combined with a large service room and various storage, central and also wood. This element also serves as partition wall which allows more privacy in the bedroom, especially through other decorative wooden walls, which elegantly configure the space.

The upper part of the partitions is made of glass, which allows a massive entry of natural light. This light flood is also made possible by the development of large windows, present in each residential area, which has allowed to abound with the wooden walls defining each room.
large bays let in light
Despite the glass openings in the dividing walls, if there were no windows to distribute the light in each room, the effect would have been much darker. It should also be noted that these wooden walls are storage spaces, and their distribution throughout the house can distribute the storage specifically for each room.
