Description:

The space we started with was a jumble of little rooms and passageways – the consequence of years of casual augmentations and modifications to the building. Basically, the Jaffa loft was initially made by joining two neighboring rooms isolated by a slender entry. Our first need was to check and reinforce the structure and from that point rearrange the spaces.

The game plan of spaces echoes the building’s history, two “houses” confront an open living range. The floor all through the ground level proceeds into the greenhouse, obscuring the line in the middle of all around. One “house” holds the resting quarters (lavatory, can, room), the other a kitchen. Wood is the marker of protection, encircling the normal exercises of living: dozing, eating, washing.

Since the condo’s inside wasn’t sufficiently tall for a stacking of two rooms, the room and washrooms are created in such an approach to permit a full-stature space for each.
