The residential area is equipped with an open plan kitchen and dining room; a bedroom separated of the rest of the house with a large monolith that contains wardrobes and kitchen appliances such as wine fridge and freezer. there is also a fully equipped bathroom and a living room leading into the garden.
The living room has a 3 panel window that opens to the courtyard, making a seamless border between interior and exterior of the house. The flooring combines tiles and gravel to delimitate the spaces.
