Text description provided by the architects. The rooftop extension containing multi-level apartments is divided into private and public areas based on the concept of green filter areas, roof folding an views. Starting out from the gridlines of the existing windows the roof shape shifts according to the inner functions and the urban context.


The urban strategy to integrate the building into the surrounding urban context leads to the concept of roof folding. The large scaled roof tiles evolve according to inner functions and urban context, with views into the city the landscape and within the multileveled apartments. The levels are divided into private on the lowest level, and common areas, on the upper levels, with vertical sliding walls and slanted panoramic sliding windows.
