In the bathroom, there is a bathtub “UFO” by Agape. This bathtub is made of polished stainless steel and placed in the center. The house floor is made of Calacatta marble while the mirror is located near the washbasins by Antoniolupi. Punctured by large openings, the white-washed sloping cellar not only gives awesome views of the sky but also cools the room with the vertical air channels.
