The second has been baptized as “gallery bathroom”, and is located on the first floor. “It is designed to be broken down into several pieces. At one end of the gallery, a closed volume contains the toilet; at the other end, another volume contains the shower; between the two, two triangular countertops and circular sinks complete the whole. This space is typologically original, wrapped in glossy white tiles, earth-colored joints and plants of different sizes, reinterpreting, thus, the classic image of a gallery,” say its ideologists, also teachers.

“The glossy white tile waterproofs and projects natural light onto those surfaces where it is strictly necessary,” the firm says.

Beyond these fixed spaces, there remains “the flexible”. Thus, The rest of the space can be used as its inhabitants prefer.which can be a “place of rest, work, meeting, specific room, dining room, play area, dressing room, yoga practice, or simply a space chill”, In the words of Martin Peláez. Therein lies, evidently, the hyperflexibility of the project, which is emphasized by a continuous and sufficiently neutral chromatic range and materiality to support such a myriad of possible uses.

Almost all the spaces in the ‘gallery bathroom’ are open to the rest of the house.
