Use all main house functions simultaneously or assign the entire space to one task



furniture/apartments where the main inspiration for this proposal. That can be

seen in the usage of moving doors/cabinets and foldable furniture.

Approach: there is an important assumption that all the main house functions may be used simultaneously. That is, sleeping, working, lounging, bathing and cooking are activities that can be coincident in the apartment with particular configurations of moving doors and closets. The opposite is also possible: the entire apartment space can be assigned to only one of the defined brief tasks, whether it is a dinner, a business meeting or a small party.

White is dominant in the apartments color´s palette. Beyond the apparent white skin, a code of colors customizes each different house function, without overwhelming the white wall´s strength. The natural bamboo flooring contrasts with the white walls skin, giving a warmer touch to the apartment. It runs through all spaces, bathroom included.

There are no steps or different levels inside the apartment, making it 100% �roombable� and �scoobable�, including the shower´s wet floor.
