A green carpet on the wall along the stairs, adds a sense of lightness while climbing the stairs into the attic space. Once arrived at the top, one cannot help but be drawn to a bright and generous view of the colorful meadows below the house, opened up by a glazing along the side of the room. Floating above the rest of the living quarters, this space feels like a peaceful and quiet retreat. The wooden shell below the roofing envelops all the attic spaces, thus too a bathroom, and a bedroom to the north side with plenty of day light thanks to the long-stretched glazing in the gable. The rooms in the loft have a lot of storage space along the low-rising eaves sides and are granted even more daylight through roof windows.
A few reduced alterations to the traditional shell allowed the creation of an atmosphere and rooms congruent with our client’s vision. Thus, the deviations from tradition at the interior of these upper floors are hardly visible from the outside, promising an even more surprising break from expectations.
