The site has been refurbished with a cluster of new residential units and small workshops around a central square. The client owns a portion of the site, which consists of a concrete structure adjacent to a double-height steel structure.
The design leaves the existing structures intact and adds a third, light wooden structure. A compact, two-story residential volume is placed under the roof of the high shed, pushed to the side walls. The slabs of the concrete structure are removed to create a walled garden. The existing concrete structure is preserved in the garden and is copied in the wooden structure of the house.
