The building was formerly used as attic. To turn this old attic into a livable space, the previous owner raised the roof fifty centimeters. This principle of the space itself, a new elevation on an old basis, has become the starting point for the design. In the design, the entire space is visibly "cut through". The line has both a practical and a more poetic origin. It is the height of kitchen doors and railings. And it is the central point of a man’s body. Standing with your lower body in the old and your upper body in the new, it reflects being rooted in the past and looking to the future.
