Text description provided by the architects. The building is located a few meters from Treviso XVI century walls, within a small industrial area now disused, where Sile river leaves the historical city together with the old water way called Restera. The loft is placed at the last storey of the tower, part of a former button firm of the 20-30ies, one of the first cast-concrete structures in Treviso, connected to main part of the building through an iron and glass walkway.
