The renovation is done on floor +2, on an area of 42m².

There are three stages of this renovation project:

The first is to extend the first floor of the house to get spaces to be used for daily uses and services.

The second is to place a spiral staircase on the right spot to connect the first and second floors.

The last stage is using the wooden structure to cover the existing terraces to give a double use under the house’s roof.

There is a facade with a good width as the orientation of the house is west or east. The plan is to attach all services to the house’s party walls to open up the facades. This also can increase the ventilation, solar radiation, and views.

There are a lot of restricted spaces inside the house so the architect needs to do a lot of visual work for this project. The double spaces and different types of glass can allow one inside the house to enjoy the outside views from each reformed room.
