An example of spatial continuity
The area for daytime activities is located on the ground floor and is a bright, open space. The partitions disappear and the living-dining room grants space to the kitchen, and vice versa.
The key to this living area is spatial continuity; with a kitchen that opens up into the living and dining rooms, the space seems like one bright, open room.
Clean lines and the white tone of the floor, walls and kitchen trap light and spread it around, visually enlarging the home. The disappearing overhead lights (tucked into ceilings which hide the light bulbs) and closets (camouflaged as walls, with no frames or knobs) contribute to making this floor feel like a fluid space. The white facings allow the texture and colour of the Douglas Dinesen Fir on the stairs and upper floor to stand out.
“The separation of the two areas with SLID TOP allows for an elegant installation in the dropped ceiling”.
“We designed wood-slatted sliding partitions to visually differentiate two spaces with different uses without sacrificing the flow of light between them. The presence of these partitions really stands out in contrast with the predominant white colour of the floor, walls and ceiling. We chose KLEIN tracks because their products are made of reliable, high quality materials and are very efficient, durable and sturdy, striking a nice balance with the discrete, clean design” said architects Sara Tavares Costa and Pablo F. Díaz-Fierros.
