The existing house from the 1950s was renovated and received an energy-efficient upgrade. A few simple changes of the existing structure completely transformed the floor plan into a new layout, that perfectly serves the needs of the occupants. The old small and dark rooms were combined into a generous open-plan living area, which connects to the garden via two new terrace doors. Two “boxes” clad in wood and felt define the space and contain guest bathroom and staircase.
