The apartment being renovated is located in a collective residential building of the early 70s and is oriented to the east, south and west, enjoying a remarkable sun exposure and a privileged view of the river. With respect to the client's needs, the project introduced changes in the configuration of the interior spaces, transforming the original five-bedroom structure into a three-bedroom apartment.
This operation allowed the realization of a master suite with wardrobe and a significant increase in the kitchen area. By seeking a careful approach and reusing existing materials, the intervention has improved the quality of the interior spaces and the comfort and energy efficiency of the apartment.
