For this project the challenge was to design a space for a family of 4, with the need of 3 bedrooms, in an existing penthouse loft with a single west exposure.
All bedrooms, kitchen, living room and master bathroom needed to receive natural air and light. We resolved this by introducing a centered light well with natural ventilation, around which the functions were placed.
The new addition of a rooftop volume, connected through an open stair to the floor below, has allowed us to secure the third bedroom and study with a direct connection to the newly created roof terrace.
