When reconfiguring the 100-square-metre apartment, the architects paid close attention to its original features. They uncovered its original concrete structure that was used to create a broken-plan layout of partition walls that follow the line of the girders.
The term "broken-plan" is used to describe a layout that might include snugs, studies and television rooms instead of large lounges. This type of home is becoming increasingly popular as residents seek more secluded spaces in their homes.
"Two singular features conditioned the approach right from the beginning," said Pauzarq.
"On one hand, a powerful reinforced concrete structure with edged girders; on the other, a facade furnished with sash windows."
Their broken-plan solution saw the living room and bedrooms arranged along the apartment's front facade, while the bathroom, kitchen and dressing room were placed around its internal wall.
In the middle of the apartment, the kitchen, dining room and living room are grouped together to form a central hub.
