The original building had a messy interior and disordered vertical communication. In this matter, the intervention prioritizes the order in the interior and on the facade. Stairs are connected in a communication room in one side of the building. This benefits the reorganization of the rooms and gives each plan more unity and light. The floor plan contains the elements that are reminiscent of the fact that it was a blacksmith's shop. First floor, second floor and roof are combined to create a comfortable and contemporary house that is spatially without withdrawing from its historical character.
