The light crosses the apartment entirely thanks to two large triple glazed windows allowing plenty of light to pour into the room. The entrance and bathroom are on gound floor whereas the living space is on the upper floor. The bed was placed on a pedestral which can be separated by six sliding wooden screens. This enables various configurations and hierarchy of privacy. When the screens are closed, reading, watching a movie, or having a nap turn the night area into a real urban cocoon. Open or closed the sliding screens dialogue playfully with the room and act like an elegant and subtle light box. This partition system makes the space flexible for different living scenarios. In addition to the screens, the elevation of the bed on a functional step helps to make a distinction between the day and night area. The urban coocon enjoys a northwestern orientation, overseeing the pedestrian courtyard and keeping the distance with the street nocturnal brouhaha.
