The apartment is placed on the 4th and 5th floor of a Berlin urban block in the district of Wedding. It consists of a first floor, part of the original jugendstil building, built at the beginning of 1900, and an attic floor that was renovated as extension during the 90s.
The main architectural interventions were focused on the first level where our client, a young couple with a child and lots of friends visitors from allover the world, asked to preserve an additional guest room and integrate a new toilet and closet for guest and a pleasurable eating space. The kitchen and a big dinner table are the first element welcoming people at the entrance. In the open living room we realized a new stair in coherence with the plan. The stair, with an integrated structural shelf, keeps the rest of the room free of being lived by the family.
