They enclose openings of different types, such as led walls, louver-shaded glazing and shop front windows. The results is a strongly defined design, alternating void and closed surfaces.
The expressive continuity among the spaces is characterized by the use of dark materials alternated with vertical blinds that recall the woven straw of Japanese floor mats
