A refurbishment and storey addition project that does not break the bank – a special type of loft conversion.

This project to enlarge a loft in Vienna’s Westbahnstrasse paid special attention to economical construction, which was fully complied with regarding the design, materials and finishing techniques applied.

Flat enlargement with a space-creating lightweight box.

The loft conversion constituted an enlargement of Flat 17 on the second storey. For this purpose, the roof was planned as a roof terrace and gravelled flat roof. The former roof was dismantled and a space-creating lightweight box placed atop.

Loft-type spatial concept.

This storey addition was integrated into the urban context as a modern approach to contemporary housing. Warm timber, clear glass and vivid cross-vistas in white generate an elegant living ambiance.
