Built on a metallic structure and elevated to over three feet high, this attractive model apartment was designed to replicate in its entirety a Type B apartment of Condado La Villa building.

It was all executed respecting the building'€™s blueprint, but adapted to an independent module that would serve as a Model Apartment, so that the clients could visualize living in a1,087 square feet apartment.

The project's developers were incredibly audacious to obtain a place with such high vehicular traffic, so they could exploit all of the apartment'€™s marketing potential.

The visual interpretation of Studio Domus as to how to design and decorate this space was taken to a contemporary vision; that reflected the lifestyle of the people that want to live in buildings. This style was represented through the placement of functional elements and simple architectural forms; made in tones of warm ochre and contrasted by cold gray. 

The interior is warm and comfortable, but also expressive and daring. Even though it is a very compact dwelling, the spaces are perceived with amplitude thanks to the size of the windows and glass balconies. The entire ceiling is a large mass of concrete with no interruptions such as lintels above the doors, avoiding the use of the heavy moldings; giving the sensation of more height. 

The decoration reflects the community'€™s personality that particularly likes to live in apartments and that in the most cases are professionals and jovial people.
