ROOF EXTENSION in Vienna, Austria by TRIENDL UND FESSLER ARCHITEKTEN ZT OG

Thursday, September 10th, 2015

Article source: TRIENDL UND FESSLER ARCHITEKTEN ZT OG

Increasing urban density:
In addition to numerous technical specifications, the specific structure of the historic building, a very tight budget and local building regulations constitute a strict corset for this roof extension. The basic idea for the design was to reinterpret the spatial qualities of a classical attic. Due to the limited corridor space the apartments have been designed as a zoned “ Loftspace” on two levels. Deep cut in terraces, stairways and spatial requirements of the existing structure (chimneys, fire walls, etc.) give every apartment its own individual quality. From the public entrance floor up to the private gallery level, the functions organize self-explanatory within each unit. All apartments are accessed from the inventory level and spatially structured as duplex apartments. This allows all units north/south or east/west orientation.

Tyche Apartment in Barcelona, Spain by CaSA + Margherita Serboli

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Article source: CaSA + Margherita Serboli

The property occupies an art nouveau building of the Eixample district of Barcelona and was fully renovated by CaSA and Margherita Serboli to become the holiday apartment for an Italian family. The original layout wasted considerable space and was poorly orientated. Its longitudinal distribution, forced by the transversal bearing walls, resulted in many densely separated small spaces, spared along a long corridor that isolated the two ends of the apartment.
