The ceramic floor with patterns modern and symmetrical of the kitchen combines beautifully with the white walls, present in all the rooms, and that, in turn, share a wall made of brick. This game of materials and tones creates an urban edge in the three houses, which is reinforced by the parquet floors in light wood, present in all stays less in the space reserved for the kitchen.

In addition, in the whole of the housing, but in particular in the area shared by the living room, dining room and kitchen enters a large amount of light thanks to the large and high windows that practically go from floor to ceiling and chairs of the stay.

Finally, the space dedicated to the terrace consists of a total peace of mind achieved by the use of the simple elements that seek lightness: soil very clear, the walls are completely white and plants bring a touch of nature. In addition, on the terrace there is a large wooden table and corresponding chairs to enjoy the sun and the light of the day with a meal in the open air.
