The basic approach is to eliminate the existing layout of the apartment and to focus on intensifying its potentials. The NM apartment enjoys unique views on to the Mediterranean Sea from one side and the dense fabric of the Gemmayze district from the other, which we enhanced by opening up the facades to allow total transparency.
The proposed plan relies on three curved walls to define the spaces generating a re-orientation of the apartment towards the views with an expanded and open living, dining and entrance.
