A rather simple metallic construction holds panels of recycled polycarbonate which create a diffused boundary between two spaces. The metallic construction receives the necessary appliances and amenities of the kitchen, all of which expose their technical nature by turning their back to the main room of the project. The perception of the existing space through the translucent wall is enhanced by the few blue paint stains which are drawn on the walls and the floor, highlighting the beautiful imperfections of what is already there.
