From the architect. An old and ruined house divided in three different flats was the departing point for this project.

A new volume has been added to join the three levels and, beside the stairs, it contains toilets, kitchen and laundry room.

In the entrance floor we have the garage and laundry. The social area is on the middle floor, with living room open to the kitchen and a small courtyard.
