The building in problem is from 1921, it is a preserved and sure assets by the Committee of Architectural Heritage which safeguards its facades and external physical appearance. It is, hence, to be thought of an inside layout intervention.
The initially option we took and required to continue being adherent to from the beginning was the routine maintenance of the roof composition. It was an crucial situation for us. We desired to maintain the inner spirit of the time, preserving the genuine picket beams. Their overall look is an important component of the style spaces, and their artisanal confirmation would be tough to be replicated with newly produced beams.
The modern day facet is offered by the really dim coloring which provides a own natural environment and generates an alteration of the habitual notion of the ceiling. We had been also fascinated in the visual appeal of the unfinished finishings. For two causes, the first is to sustain the historic memory of the residence, the next purpose is that we consider the un-completed details transfer an genuine, correct, and far more hospitable come to feel. There are portions of the present wall which are on sight, portions with even the unique 1920s wallpaper, and parts of the wall with classic bricks only painted with white grout.
The staircase is a sheet steel aspect micro-perforated, it is an object that difficulties gravity, and will work on transparency. e It stands up thanks to its shape and its material’s properties, it only has lateral support and hence it is incredibly reliable.
