In this project we try to recover the old constructive elements that are hidden behind the coatings or suspended ceilings, putting in value all their properties that are emphasized by the contrast of the new elements or materials used.

We keep the stair in his old position to generate a service band, where you can find the stair-lift-and wc. This band assists to the open spaces of each floor, and they only have a wall of stone that divide the floor and let look the total set like an only space.
