The highest level of musical intensity (Access hall -piano- bar) is wrapped in corrugated surfaces; the average intensity zone with perforated surfaces (Living room -lounge -kitchen) and the minimum activity zone (bedrooms) by smooth surfaces or textiles.

On the side, another group of strategies show the rhythmic differences between these zones:
-Through illumination (surface, linear or spot) – Superficial, for personal use zones, linear in the areas of sharing and socializing, or spot as used to dramatize the approach to areas of rest and relaxation;

– Neutral or bold colors – The palette of colors in access area is predominantly black and white as a direct reference to the piano that occupies the center of attention in this area, and on this basis neutral in the rest of the common areas are incorporated in a controlled manner vivid colors giving more prominence to the woods. The surfaces of greater color intensity were limited to children’s play areas.
– Fixed furniture of random lines or resting lines – The custom-designed furniture for storing musical instruments is also mobil bar.
