“El Patio de Luz” is the central element of the project as it conceptually controls and is the point of convergence of the orbits of all the other spaces, evoking the historical relationship between the Iberian culture and the sun.

A closer look at this homely but ephemeral space will sooner or later reveal that everything in it, its “leather like” upholstered wainscoting, its textile wallpapered envelope, all cushioning and bed linens, every window and lamp screen, all wooden joinery pieces, each of the wall hung prints and even its area rug, are all made of nothing but LATEX INK. Please step in this all-printed environment and wonder!
