Courtyards and an open space structure for the shared spaces dominate this loft conversion. Set-in "room bodies" are "washed" by the shared space. This long extending area is accented by daylight through a patio, loggias and skylights. The very high ceilings of over 4 meters, as well as the narrow width of the space in the side wing, lend a certain elegance to the design. The room height allows for small retreat galleries and the patio in the side wing allows daylight to penetrate deeply. It is externally referenced and allows for excellent ventilation of the attic. As a point of light along the long brick axis, it is both an eye-catcher and a separation from the more private areas. The brick wall as a reminiscence of the existing building connects everything. Warm lime plaster and a casein floor filler together with light wood fixtures give the attic conversion a natural and homely character.
The attic is built entirely in wood. All surfaces are of natural origin and kept open to diffusion to create a pleasant indoor climate. Heating is provided by district heating over very large floor and wall surfaces.
