Level apartment … inside Art Nouveau house

The project is the renovation of an apartment contained within an art nouveau building originally
designed and built in 1902 (architect C.M. Koch). The building is a 5 floor residential block
in the centre of Ljubljana overlooks an adjacent square within a layered district of residential
and mixed use buildings.
The brief required an open plan layout within clearly defined spaces.

concept phases

- a new layout features an open arrangement space defined by elevating rooms to varied heights
-rooms defined by elevating the floor heights, creating an uninterrupted
circulation flow within the space which doubles as storage underspace
-retaining only the dominant structural partitions, the continuous circulation maintains a feeling of a
unified entity comprised of smaller entities
- changing levels for definition of rooms, furniture merged with floors to define use of room the space
-Use of floors as definition of rooms instead of walls
-creating furniture from floor elements
-refurbishing of historic elements, doors, windows etc
