The result is a very luminous space, which in this case was achieved by using light tones for the walls and a master design of the artificial lighting.

The whole aesthetics is clean and simple. Walls have been left almost untouched, only occasionally lined with materials such as concrete or wood in shared areas or tile flooring in other common spaces. The final result is a clearly neutral space which, in the case of the apartments, allow every resident enough room for own equipment.

The choice of colours continues on the same neutral line. Grey and brown for most of the furniture, white in the kitchens, bathrooms and transit areas, and light-toned wood. To avoid the dullness some splashes of colour have been introduced mostly through blue, green and yellow textiles. A palette that extends to the common areas, in which the green of the plants decorating shelves and walls also stands out.

The pieces of furniture follow the same simple lines, mixing modern style with a few other of a more traditional design, but all of them with a current taste.

The common area is an open space that is articulated through different scenarios: the reading, screening and internet rooms. The transitions are noticed by light and texture. Lighting has been applied using a great variety of lamps, making special emphasis on the lights in the ceiling of the common spaces.
