This space seems larger than it is thanks to its high ceilings, over 3.1 m high, its large window and its sunroof.

There is an internal shower room at the back and behind ridged sliding doors hides the fridge and linen cabinet, a smart project that was done during the lockdown and means you no longer see these devices when you cross the threshold for the first time.
