Two curved walls with translucent thickness define two wide and rounded areas. Interior spaces are surrounding and light, with different textures over the white. Horizontal lines draw the curved geometry over material. Outside, heavier and coloured spaces also have imprecise limits, with perforated sheets that enclose deep walls. The openings connect both sides, forming a big continuous extension with a flexible use. A blue surface with zigzagging shape, formed by repetition of concave elements, hides the program of smaller spaces. Ceiling reliefs modulates both space and sound. Textured Stones and hairy clothes emphasizes other surfaces synthetic and glossy finishings, and the weightlessness of the lighting materials. Domed forms, double doors, textiles are images that create a palace atmosphere.
