Mondrian without borders

U+A Architecture & Interior Design as Architects

A contractor's apartment in a new building on the fourth floor.
The clients are a couple in their late 30s a neurologist and an information systems auditor with 6-year-old twins with contents that I realized in advance that it is not possible to enter their new apartment without producing lots of new storage space and order.
