Text description provided by the architects. As the project takes place into an 1850s carpentry, the main focus is to showcase the qualities of the existing building; a remarkable construction for its volume and materials. The layout places the open-plan kitchen at the heart of the space, standing against an opaque mass hosting the washing station and the toilets.
