The loft is located in the old garage / workshop residence built by Henricão own in the 50’s, located in the Garden neighborhood in BH.

The project arose from the need Grandpa Henricão (Henrique Fernando Tetzç) to have a new place to live with accessibility, as access to the inner area of the house happens for a very long ladder and Grandpa with its 92 years (20 / 04/1923) could not overcome all the steps in an easy way. And with that he went to rent part of the house where he lived to the nearby hospital.

Thus in 2013 we had with him the idea of “live” the space where he worked all his life repairing electronics, garage / workshop. The space was thrown to rot unused, abandoned.

The total area of the room is approximately 60m², divided between the ground floor (36m2) and mezzanine (24m2). The cost of the renovation was approximately R $ 30,000.00, considering everything from appliances reform materials, labor, work, etc. The time for reform was approximately two months.

Our choice was to leave the social area and Grandpa’s bed on the first floor along with the bathroom. All this integrated with the kitchen and service area, and possible isolation between them from a curtain.

On the mezzanine floor we rent a recreation area between the family and two beds / sofa which support for family members and others who daily turns the night company with Henricão. On the mezzanine also created a balcony that has contact with the street, where he has a small vegetable garden, grown for it to pass the time. Ah! We also had to adjust the stairs to the mezzanine, creating two more steps, because the existing mirrors had very high with approximately 25cm.

Another point you will notice is that we have chosen to highlight the facade of the loft, giving a treatment with whitewashed paint and placing a metal railing designed by us, where you can observe the growth of a vine planted by Grandpa.
