The attic of a historic building, strongly characterized by the shape of the roof and by the articulation of the plant around a central court, is transformed into a bright and welcoming apartment thanks to few and simple devices.
The demolition of a couple of walls and, simultaneously, the design of a retractable partition, amplify the space, returning a spatial perception that is wider than the actual available surface.
An open-space articulated on two different levels and assembling together the kitchen, the living room and an alcove space is the heart of the home.
The light comes from the openings of the patio, a skylight and the windows facing the street behind. The main dormitory extends into a second living room, having also a small loft that can be turned into a studio.
By enlarging a window, is given access to a small outdoor area that, thanks to its optimal orientation, is designed as a solarium.
