As a first step, the interior walls were removed from the area, the first floor and only the wooden structure necessary to support the ceiling was left so that the space was free and clear. The original walls, ceiling and floors of the room had their coatings removed (originally where used for functionality, mantainance and comfort) to be able to show their primary structures. Architecture in its most basic form. As second step, a circular panoramic curtain was installed in this space. This element will function as a phenomenological receptor and will project the light and wind that enters through the windows.
