The request, which consisted of designing a different and innovative living space and completely different from what could be imagined as a home, arose as a challenge.
To unify the concept of living, an irregular capsule was idealised that extends all over the flat and surrounds walls and ceiling, a wrinkled pladur skin, as if it were a crumpled sheet of paper, scattered throughout the space. The white floor, with triangular light gaps, which groove the floor and make it an integrated part of the whole, completes and reinforces the intervention.
The central idea was centred on the deconstruction of walls and ceilings, formalised in triangulations that would embrace all the corners and complements necessary for the functioning of the dwelling. The ceiling triangles act as lighting points that are spread throughout the space in a careful manner. Irregular polygons constitute the doors of wardrobes, pantry and laundry room. In the small bathroom, triangles of light and mirrors contribute to the spatial illusion and provide fantastic sensations. From a small glass triangle, filled with water, life sprouts. Plants grow in it and challenge the ordinary way of living.
