The open plan for its living spaces is obviously exceptional, doing this spacious illusion thingy which heighten some kitchen layout boldly sporting the birch and marble polishing. The chimney in steps! That's also a key part which leads the stairs and also hides it. You can almost see it as it seems cultivated from its floor, as the result of the nice blend of the bold lineal parts and walls plus ceiling's styles.

What is hemeroscopium anyway?
Hemeroscopium is for the Greek the place where the sun sets, an allusion to a place that exists only in our mind, in our senses. It is constantly moving and mutable, but is nonetheless real. It is enclosed, delimited and suggested by the horizon, though it is defined by light and only takes place in a precise moment of time.
See? A place that exists only in our mind, constantly mutable, yet real.
In a whole and in a plain english, we can simply say – it's an alienated captivating place.
