This project entailed the reconstruction of an existing historic structure into new apartments. Whereas the original structure worked hard to keep the exterior out, the redesign emphasized the beauty of natural light, generating a strong connection between inside and out.
Each unit is organized around a distinctive skylight which serves to unify the space and create a unique experience for the occupants. Residential units are not only suffused with light but enjoy a distinctive design that contributes to the occupation of the space.
Glazed partitions are used extensively to create a sense of transparency and spatial continuity within that complements the abundant natural light and gives residents a sense of coherence within each space.
