[ SLEEPING AND RELAXING ]
The upper area is gigantic! I have at disposal 2.5 m sometimes 2 metres to lie down comfortably in the upper area, to read a book and to sleep. It’s a lot of place and two people find enough space for sleeping and enough space to store personal things and books.
To hold an optical balance, I have also attached strips and covered it with a grey-blue colour. This dark grey gives a quiet atmosphere which is exactly right for relaxing.
As a pad I have selected Tatami, because it guarantees a sufficient ventilation and prevents mould. Tatami is a damming up and damping mat of rice straw which is used in Japan as a floor. At night a Futon on the Tatami is spread out to serve as a sleeping site.
