In this project, the use of mobile panels which consist of two multiwall polycarbonate sheets and an intermediate sheet of methacrylate, brings both color and light transmission to the composition. With this system of mobile panels, spaces can be compartmentalized while offering privacy as well as lighting and soundproofing. It consists of a set of sliding screens that separate two environments - kitchen and living room - plus some doors for cabinets within the same area. These sliding doors are made up of three layers: multiwall polycarbonate sheets that give the exterior finish, and an intermediate sheet of methacrylate, that brings various possibilities of color to the composition. These materials are assembled with a perimeter frame, using sheets of different sizes, bringing color and the possibility to play with design of different forms. The distribution of the mobile panels was used in this design for: On the one hand for the formation of mobile panels, that creates a partition between two spaces: the living room and dining room. These panels also allow these two spaces to be separated while bringing in diffused light - a dynamic feature that could not be achieved with a common wall. The formation of these two panels as sliding doors brings color to the composition and gives this space an atmosphere of transparency and privacy, as well as lightness to the partitions.
