 "The space is on the second floor, I've had the feeling it could be an apartment, or maybe more a place where people would gather, or meet. Still, a place that is not entirely public as well as not entirely private. Its familiar features are embodied in the architecture of the space, with the wooden floor and the door frames and the radiators. And the large windows from which one can hear the cars passing by underneath."
