It is a rearranged small house.
There is a maximum space on minimal area of 45 m2. The ceiling in the center has a height of 4.20 m and at the lowest point- about 2 m. Colombo provided a wonderful mini-accommodation for six people (five beds and a sofa bed) with two bathrooms. Minispazio is really intense, compressed and thought through.
The space is visually larger because of the continuity of the coating. There is one color on floor, walls and ceilings. All the furnishings were designed by Joe Colombo. The furniture is concentrated in large, central block closet, which is available from all sides. Although the furnishings are main part of the home design, here they are free and there is a lot of possibilities of using them.
