By building a two-storey loft extension, we were able to create a new, high-quality 500m2 living space near the city centre. On its street side, the expansion blends in elegantly with the surroundings. The selected support structure allows for a generous opening of the roof area, ideal for window strips and terraces. Looking towards the yard, there is a stepping and some more useful exterior space.
Part of the project was also the careful analysis of the existing structure and its strengthening, while taking into account the current requirements of stability and earthquake safety.
