In this loft a series of elements are added to the relatively neutral existing shell, punctuating and ordering space: A stair / bookcase, a fireplace and a wood coated central volume, which contains all services, facilities and several retractable elements, enabling to control the degree of partitioning of space, depending on the needs at each moment. Circulation takes place all the way around the said central volume.
