How can you envision a modern architectural project for a small roof extension without coming into conflict with a mixed and dense historic urban courtyard? Instead of chasing a reorganizing design the project aims to amplify the complexity of the site by introducing a materials and volumes trough unexpected joints.
Two shifted volumes in relation to the adjacent buildings’ façades generate vibrant interiors and a complex system of terraces and balconies. The project deals with traditional roof materials and reuses them in a contemporary way.
