The materials that stand out are wood and marble, that beside integrating to the rest of the spaces, define the natural colors palette that highlights the quality of the materials. In some areas some accents were marked with walls painted in dark colors and the same effect was applied to some wood coverings keeping the earth colors.

A wood cover conceals the door to the services area and its location allows the correct attention to both the public and private areas. The family room is a transition space and the lighting design for this space was very important to make sure all the activities were enjoyed. The toy library is next to this space and has sliding doors that allow integrating or separating it from the family room according to the activities of the family´s youngest ones.
