he client’s requests were precise, he asked for personal and introspective space which allowed the possibility of constant experiences inside the apartment, in the common and private areas, as well as on the terraces and hallways. The Project is being developed in a mixeduse zone with visual and sound saturation, additionally, our client’s professional activities, which generate a great amount of stress on a daily basis, required the integration of special characteristics into the apartment. Our interior decorating and furnishing pro-
posal consisted in generating points of continuity and recreation, one of the main concepts involved setting off a relationship with nature while preserving privacy, through contact with terraces and inner gardens, through reading, recreation and working areas, and spaces in which to get together with friends and family, all of this within a 200m2 apartment. The color palette and textures of the materials are sober and neutral, allowing the full expression of the art, decoration, and vegetation. The main materials used are:
Hardwood, which covers most of the apartment’s surface, the doors and structure’s walls have an anthracite gray lacquer finish, marble in the main bathroom, and cantera (quarry) stone in the secondary bathrooms. The furniture has a mix of walnut wood tones with color lacquer. Most of the built-in furniture was custom-designed, as well as a few special pieces for the main area.
