The project consists in the fusion of two apartments and the purpose is to ensure an optimal connection between the internal space using an existing division of the day and night areas. The access to each room is defined by three distribution niches, lowered from a false ceiling and covered with colored MDF panels, in order to better define and give a meaning to the apartment hierarchy.
The connections between the main rooms are always made through these secondary spaces by large openings and high doors. The new distribution of the rooms is no longer designed as a closed environment, on the contrary, are connected between them to form a unique fluid space which gives prominence to both the sequence of spaces and to the prospectives created. From every corner of the house it is possible to perceive the total length of the apartment and therefore a continuous connection with the external space, supporting a natural cross ventilation and more light.
Thanks to a careful analysis undertaken on MDF samples, red has been chosen as the key color to fill the niches and baseboards. The conjunction of these two elements to each other creates with the rest of the space a continuous belt which rises and falls, giving strength to the formal and conceptual unity. The floor reflects this continuity by the maintenance and the extension of the parquet to new environments, while its design follows the different rule of the space hierarchy, changing depending on the function: the living area, the night area, the services and distribution niches are different.
