The challenge here was to bring the building back to its originally intended use: a single-family house. After having been split in many tiny apartments, there was little left of the original details or sense of space. Deviating from the traditional plan, the kitchen was placed between living room and dining room, thereby opening the dining room to natural light and access to the back yard. A large skylight on top of the stairwell brings natural light to the inner parts of the house, turning what used to be a dark corridor into a pleasant family room.
