Nowadays, the private areas in apartment complexes are getting smaller, creating discomfort for most dwellers. This project, NoCloset, was made for an apartment measuring 35m². The idea is to replace internal walls (non-structural) with two layers of tempered glass – one layer fixed and another that works as sliding or pivoting doors. Using 35cm deep shelves between these layers, it is possible to eliminate wardrobes and kitchen cabinets, greatly increasing the interior space of the apartment. The transparency levels of the glass panels can be partially or totally diminished using glass coatings, based on the dweller’s preferences.
