This 65 sq. m. one-bed apartment was transformed into a modern two-bed apartment with a spacious living room and an open plan kitchen. The removal of the kitchen and living room walls allowed natural light to flood the main living area and achieved cross ventilation. The old dining room was turned into a second bedroom and the bathroom was enlarged, to feature a spacious walk-in shower. In terms of materiality, the pre-existing wooden flooring in the main rooms was retained and polished while the tiles used in the rest of the space paid a tribute to the mosaic floor that used to be there.
