Project Information

Low ceilings and too many rooms

This is the story of a project that made me like the original building more every day I was working on it. The substance was rock solid, blockwork, brick cladding and reinforced concrete floors.

For the size of the rooms the ceiling was too low and the placement of the building on the plot in relation to the neighboring  buildings prevented the sun from entering into the house.

Inviting spaces

Taking away some parts of the ceiling, opening the garden facade and opening up the cellular structure of the rooms created a friendly and open atmosphere for a relatively small budget.
