Project
The project concerns the residential transformation of a warehouse. The client, a real estate developer, required a young and up-to-date look for his new apartments. The design made by LPzR architects keeps the former building perimeter and adds a new livable floor. Four apartments are placed at the ground floor and four at the first floor.

Architectural design
The main building volume is a simple red parallelepiped. An apparently random pattern of windows is applied, generating dynamic effects on the main façade. The asymmetries of the solid white frames give the façade a unique three-dimensional look.
