The challenge: providing a comfortable living space within a historic setting
The atmosphere of an old building combined with all the mod cons of a new build. That is what our client had in mind when she commissioned us to undertake the conversion and renovation of her Art Nouveau apartment.
 
The design: sensitive restoration
With great care we removed the traces of earlier, inappropriate renovations from the Art Nouveau stucco work, ensuring that the finely patterned glass inlays were restored on the basis of an original source. Knocking through between living and dining rooms achieved the desired effect of spaciousness. By closing off one of the doors to the bedroom, a private sanctuary was created at the end of the hallway.
We combined the toilet and the bathroom. With custom-made fittings, a pleasant bathroom was created which meets today’s rigorous standards. We converted the former store cupboard into a toilet for guests.
Kerstin Heyroth: 'Renovating old buildings is a balancing act. One insensitive move and the building loses its character and soul.'
