3 Stories is an apartment converted from a most unusual structure to a contemporary living space. 'I highly doubt, that this apartment can be turned into a decent home' - said a close relative of the owner, seconds after we first saw this place. I hardly agreed. I loved it. Luckily, the owner - a great innovator, a friend and a fellow dino enthusiast - and I were on the same page about the outcome. This was one of the most complicated structures, I have ever seen, covered by numerous layers of human history and unwanted building materials. We had to take the long road and uncover this beauty and turn it to a contemporary home. Having three stories with one entrance simplifies the question of public and private spaces, naturally the first story became the public zone with the entrance-lobby-kitchen-dining room combo. Since one of the main attractions of the apartment is the incredible roof terrace, located on the third story, we had to connect this to the public zone, while creating a nice quiet private part, a bedroom with its on terrace and a bathroom on the second story. So we went on and created a nice cozy living room underneath the beautiful roof structure, connected with two staircases. This way we have a perfectly fluent connection between all the spaces.
