The team consists of Diego Molina Maria Arango and Camilo Pelaez renovation living room into more lighting. This residence brings a balance between nature and contemporary living in a renovation of an Art Deco style terrace.
The plan of the Master bedroom space is true to the axial layout of the house. To overcome the constraint of maintaining the height of the second floor a new mezzanine space was created to accommodate an additional guest bedroom in the attic space. A jack roof was necessary to allow sufficient light into the attic. Light is able to penetrate through the house. The main spiral staircase depicts a rhythmic ribbon that ascends to attic space. This detaches the circulation space and spatially breaks up the bedroom areas. The benefits of the flexible space leading to the air well gives the occupant the option of creating a different type of space within the house. The aluminium clad air well draws light into the residence ensuring a well-let open plan living space meeting the client’s desires.
