The lot, measuring a total of 110 square meters, had been previously used as a warehouse deposit for a small shop from the 1970s. A first intervention turned it into a commercial space dedicated to the sale of products to complement bathroom furniture. A second intervention expanded its size.

The need for an exposition space for the different pieces of furniture, in particular for the wood fireplaces, suggests to clients a new expansion that will be built beside the warehouse previously mentioned, in a lot formerly occupied by a parking lot. The wishes of the client were to create a new space that would communicate through the creation of window exhibitions.

The plane is broken, in a way, by a small space open to the sky, which can be observed through two windows opposite. There, a small garden grants the air life and floor, while at the same time dividing the space in two – into the furniture exhibition with a reception and meeting area, and into a visualization area.
