From the architect. Responding to a mixed-used program of living and working a shell was implemented into the ample volume of the existing industrial building. The newly introduced structure is detached from the ground floor only connecting through a cantilevering staircase. It defines a top and a bottom, creating a living space and one dedicated to working.

The semi-public working space on the ground floor is left very raw and open almost untreated.The newly introduced hovering structure by contrast has a very warm ambiance evoked by wooden surfaces and its sunbathed interiors.

It comprises on the first floor a spacious living and dining area with a kitchen opening up to a generous terrace to one side and being more close by framing views to the workshop area to the other side.

On the upper floor, the space becomes more intimate, hosting the bedroom and alcove, offering a view over the city scape.

The construction of the cabin is comprised of a primary steel-framework structure combined with a secondary wood structure. The outer shell of the cabin is characterized by the cork insulation left visible. The inclined interior facade permits a double orientation without dominating the atelier on the ground floor.
