A beautiful villa just finished, but not very functional. The owners, living in the new house, realized that the open space was difficult to furnish and to live in everyday life.
They wanted to characterize the dining area and, at the same time, to separate it from the conversation area.
A corten steel structure divides the dining area from the living room; it holds a classic frame with a wooden scuplure inside.
On the other side a corten steel bookcase is visible from the dining room. On the back wall, wallpaper by Elitis defines the space.
