Easy, purposeful and really humble, this area served as a warehouse, mechanic’s workshop and eventually as a parking zone for folks from all around the metropolis. Virtually sixty years later, a household, new to the world, noticed on this warehouse, which had fallen into disuse, the chance to transform it into a house.
The mission required a brand new metallic construction as a key component that varieties the primary ground slab base and a complete rehabilitation of the roof. The present truss was in poor situation and would get replaced with a Vierendel beam to light up the distributor/examine on the second ground. The brand new construction supported solely on the celebration partitions and on two factors of the present basement partitions, making a balanced intervention and avoiding the re-cementation of the constructing. The primary-floor elevation was constructed with a timber-framed facade and a light-weight wooden roof. Considering that the present beams have been in good situation and that they have been extracted by the builder from his forests within the space, they have been repurposed for the roof, and the wooden from the outdated truss was reworked into furnishings. It grew to become the shelf and the desk within the kitchen-dining room, and the lavatory cupboard on the bottom ground. The present yard facade and the celebration partitions of the home are remoted, making certain an envelope that limits the demand for power. Strategic openings within the roof have been created to advertise the chimney impact, thus permitting pure cross air flow of all rooms.
