the design by paola bagna and john paul coss makes use of every single corner of the interior. right next to the entrance door, behind cashmere grey coated wooden doors, there is space for the washing machine, next to it a matching compartment for washing powder and above it the wardrobe. the open kitchen has fronts in the same material. to let in as much daylight as possible, the worktop is slightly lowered towards the window, while a metal staircase leads up to the plateau where the sleeping area is.

a living area with loft feeling shows the antique bricks which together with the old wooden floors contrast to the new materials of the carpentry and the concrete ciré of the kitchen floor. the 360 cm high ceilings of this old building allowed the architects to create a sleeping area above the bathroom and kitchen area, leaving the shower area at full height to increase comfort and allow the window to be opened fully. a window in the bathroom also allows daylight to enter.
