The home was designed as a series of one level planes that embrace two gardens. The continuous roof covers the L shape and creates a second level of living for reading, sleeping, studying and playing.
The form plays with simple but affective strategies of orientation, letting the light in through different ways during a day.

The brief intended the transformation of an office building into a housing scheme that included a mix of typologies: Studios, 1 & 2 bedroom apartments as well as a communal reception at 1st level.
The design took simple moves, adapting to the existing features:
The windows were extended down as balconies and internal joinery partitions were drawn as playful units that divide and interlock spaces.
