The bedrooms – with the geometry of a cube with 2.50m edge – were designed in order to provide the maximum flexibility of the student’s private space.By using folding furniture, namely beds and desks, the bedrooms can be easily transformed in study, living or leisure areas. The storage spacewas maximized and designed to allow the bedroom to be quickly cleared up.

The bathroom was planned as a sequence of three spaces that can be used simultaneously and occupying a very small area. The shared kitchen was kept in the original location, being the room with the best view over the Tagus River.
