The sleeping area is composed of two distinct areas on the height: the real alcove with a height of 125 cm and a multifunctional free area in the side of the window. This free area can be incorporated with the living area and creates a bigger area for eating or to relaxing. Alternatively, if partitions are properly closed between this area and the alcove, and between this area and the living room, it creates a third space to be used for silent activities or multipurpose functions.
The table and chairs are the only furnitures that can be moved, depending on the needs, can become alternately space or room, or an office-relaxing area.

The main artficial light is provided from fluorescent lights which positioned according to the different possibilities of use of the space.
The lights are chosen very narrow light cones, so they give a lighting point exactly on the required area.
As a support to the main lighting, some controllable plugs have been prepared for the application of vertical lightning on the floor, to offer a warm light when it is necessary.
From the point of view of color finishes, the color of the walls tend to follow and reinforce the differences in quality of different private spaces, from light to darker color tones from the public spaces through the private spaces.
The small size of the apartment, led to the use of light colors and natural finishes. Domestic space is clear and ordered according to logical function. And it is able to accommodate different elements, even discordant, to use as personalization (colorful chairs, books, elements of vegetation) but the overall atmosphere is compromised.
