The six windows that accompany the new space expose the apartment rooms to the sunlight evenly. The result of the refurbishment makes the new space of the flat is quite long and shallow.

The division of the surfaces can create some particular functions that consist of a bathroom, a bedroom, a kitchen, a living room, and also an entry area. The apartment wall also holds in itself a door to some individual rooms: a sliding door to the bedroom and opened traditionally, high to the ceiling, to the bathroom. There are also a lot of different niches functioning as wardrobes.
