爱博体育官网Rooms seem either moody and dimly let or bright and airy, depending on the lighting.

"The design of the architecture enabled to develop the same language, based on spatial quality and a deep sense of order for both the interior and the exterior," the studio said. "It is a project thought up from the inside out."

Most of the furniture is by Italian brand Cassina, in addition to custom pieces made by local designer and some lights are by .

爱博体育官网"With almost no visual distractions, neither of form nor of materials, the upper metallic of the railing represents very well the constant aim of the studio to emphasise the details, while a slight separation of the walls of the building makes this element a stage in itself," said Francesc Rifé Studio.
