The apartment is a small 30 sqm cell in which the task was to organise a living space for a single male person.
The most important task was to create a living room as large as possible with additional service spaces – entrance, kitchenette, workspace, bathroom, bedroom, audio & video space – all in 30 m2.
The size of the services is reduced to the minimum. They are displaced around the main room and form a sort of enclosed cupboard. Sliding doors are made of semi-transparent Perspex (polymethil metacrilate) with a blurry print..
During the daytime the envelope appears as a totally opaque, solid wall. At night the envelope becomes a bright light box, creating a nocturnal city lights atmosphere.
