Description

The designers for this project had to work with a labyrinthine apartment that was highly fragmented, lacked proportion and suffered from poor lighting. Their design focused on understanding what was important and making the respective choices, recycling the rest. A glass and metal curtain wall now opens onto a patio and the spacious living room has a raised ceiling. The old internal walls have given way to mezzanine floors, original furnishings have become decorative architectural elements and the once unnoticeable solid stone elements have been used to create a patio.
