The layout of a 1950s apartment presents a most standard configuration, consisting of corridor and rooms. The young couple who settles in feels the need for flexible spaces, an open living and working area and a separated portion for guests. The demolition of all partitions frees up the plan so autonomous objects can be placed. A polished concrete floor contains the underfloor heating and creates a unique surface that links all the spaces. The concrete structure is unveiled by removing the plaster. The theme of the project is a sequence of anomalies, out-of-place elements that amplify the contrast between the apartment interior and the rest of building. The fulcrum of the apartment is the double-sided birch volume that hosts the kitchen on one side, a washing machine and a wardrobe on the other side. This volume nearly touches one of the concrete pillars which holds together the irregular beams layout. The bathtub is placed in the bedroom, thus superposing the private sphere of the room and the living room’s social one. The entrance area contains the exposed boiler and divides the house into two different portions although, being made of timber, it can be removed allowing for new configurations.
