Their design focused on creating one solid wooden volume of birch plywood with extended wall cabinets alongside the whole length of the apartment.

By incorporating program like bathroom, toilet, storage and a box-bed all inside the wooden volume the space around the volume can be freely used for other program like living, dining, cooking and all the other pleasures of life.
