during the refurbishment, vora made the decision to generate a double house opening following to the rear façade, consequently permitting direct normal light to illuminate the entire condominium. the filming studio is placed less than the terrace, which is the darkest and consequently most appropriate space, and is built to be related to the dwelling room, to facilitate the citizens who operate from house. the floor ground concentrates the prevalent regions, whilst the initial ground allocates the bedroom. the staircase is mounted at the corner, making a direct hyperlink involving the living home and the terrace.
the configuration of the interior space is accomplished with the use of picket bins that consist of different features (bogs, closets, mattress), hence building a fluid but articulated place. on the initially floor, these bins do not achieve the ceiling, making it possible for a total perception of room. in the meantime, the principal circulation of the residence is arranged around the residing room: the ascent to the terrace, the back gallery and an open walkway to access the bedrooms.
stairs, walkways, and railings are constructed on steelworks, and are fashioned to be purposely slim, virtually non-existent. in addition to these trim railings, some sections of sheet metal type curved sections that match the truncated geometry of the plan. as significantly as finishes are worried, the design and style combines plastered walls with painted masonry to entire the gentle inside. the flooring will take shape as continuous microcement, and the containers are constructed with plywood with birch complete. in the entrance area, outdoors, and on the terrace, the pure colors of the masonry have been preserved, unpainted.
