The additional ceiling height was key to making the decision of constructing a loft, providing the option of placing a bed upstairs. This way the lower floor is liberated and two different zones are created, allowing several options of using these as a study, living room or a dressing room. This would even allow the creation of two different bedrooms with individual access to the shared, newly created gallery-bathroom. The result is a dwelling with very similar day zones as the rest of our interventions on the building, but with greater versatility on the interior zones.
On previous projects we liberated the interior space by recovering patios and terraces to allow the dwelling to breath towards the back of the building. This time, however, we considered the interior gallery to be an indispensable element which should not be broken apart from the rest of the interior space. The old bathroom, was a miniscule enclosure, so we decided to extract the wash basin and placed it on the opposite side of the gallery, widening its use and making it more luminous. The more private areas of the bathroom became more ample, especially the shower.
