The new plan organization favours direct connection between living room and the great terrace. The main project purpose is to define a threshold between this two spaces. Due to the presence of several windows, the wall is difficultly usable. Besides living room and terrace are located on different levels. The solution is a fixed furniture, with irregular profile, a wave covered by a marble top that make ephemeral the border between in and out. At the same time is a seating, a base, a support.
