The project is the renovation of an apartment contained within an Art Nouveau building originally designed and built in 1902. Many of the existing partitions were removed to create a more continuous space, leaving only the main structural walls to break the space up creating a constant circulation around the apartment and giving the feeling of a single entity broken by only a few elements. Instead of using walls to define the uses, levels within the floor were created so that the open plan could be kept however a change in use inside the space was signified by a change in elevation. via
