In this same space we find the kitchen and the dining room. What highlights the look is an industrial but a sober touch achieved with the use of black iron plate present in several points; The wood slat separator that houses a small bar for informal meals and the predominant use of white in the kitchen that brings light, visually expands the space and combines great with the rest of the materials present in the day area.

Next to the bedroom suite we find a large bathroom. White has been used in furniture and coatings. A colour that brings elegance and that is synonymous with cleanliness. In addition, having no windows helps to reflect more the light, making a more illuminated bathroom. Highlight the laundry area which is hidden in a closet of folding doors to go unnoticed when is not in use.
