The apartment, close to Barcelona, is situated by the beach. Given: a single space of 20 m². In this space, the clients request the following program :
– A living-room to watch television with friends 
– A shower for two people 
– A terrace to have an aperitif at night with a kid [2+1=2]
– A dining-room for ten people 
– The possibility that five people can sleep in the apartment with some intimacy 
One furniture of variable geometry divided in three modules [kitchen, shelves and an individual bed] allows to adjust the space to the different uses. The shelves could be used, if necessary, as a folding screen. The door-wardrobe with access to the bathroom also opens the laundry area. The mezzanine over the bathroom can accommodate a bedroom for two people, which can be accessed through a ladder placed on the side wall. A folding table can be opened to have dinner. The storage space over the terrace keeps among other things, the ten chairs necessary for dining.
