Starting from a music venue on ground floor, a study-art gallery was projected.
Local is completely emptied, leaving an open space. Remove to open and let in inside-out streaming.
Perimeter is doubled correcting geometrically the plant, creating different spaces to host pills services (storage, bathroom and office) and allow for an open exhibition and office space.
It was decided to retain the essence of space, restoring beams and concrete pillars, and using fewer materials without presence; microcement pavement and pine for carpentry.
