The apartment was visibly disfigured and degraded. The parlors looked over the road; the kitchen and the bedroom stood above an enclosed balcony, which led to an abandoned courtyard where the loquat endured. The project contemplates the conversion of the parlors into bedrooms making way for the living room.

The sliding panel, standing between it and the common areas, has two openings, which allows illumination of the corridor and brings the loquat into context.

Then arises a bench, turned westward, and a tank with running water; lengthy marble elements which strive to invigorate the outside and emblazon the kitchen and the living room, as well as the loquat.
