Built in 1851, this townhouse needed to be entirely renovated. The program demanded to split the building into two apartments of equal value. The previous condition hosted a large triplex apartment with 3 separate loft spaces at the top ﬂoor. The deteriorated condition demended installing new steel structure, electrical, plumbing and HVAC systems.
The rear facade was updated with a large skylight, glass terrace, and powered glass wall. The entire roof surface was converted to a usable space, creating three new terraces and a roof deck.
The design team was formed by Ulimar LLP (design, ODA (A or O), Ingo Maurer (lighting designer) and Emilio Garcia (sculptor). Together the team’s goal was to create a generous multi-function space to maximize spatial experience and bathe the entire house with natural light during the sunny seasons and provide abundant white light in the winter.
