The project’s aim was increasing surface by adding to the house living spaces the room just under the roof. In order to convert this space into inhabitable, a new stairwell was made to provide access from the first floor, and two windows were open to allow sun heating on the south face of the roof.
This open space is now furnished with two simple wooden tables which permit its use either as a living-room, or a study or a children’s gaming room, besides having two storage areas in each end of the new room.
To reach the new lounge, a new light steel staircase has been placed, designed to bring light to lower levels.
