The Olympia Loft shows the transformation of a 55sqm, self-contained, unmodernised and very fragmented single floor flat, into a 77 sqm open plan and section double height apartment. The result is a two bedrooms apartment with an open plan layout for the living areas and a master bedroom on the mezzanine-balcony above, that overlook the living below through a full width internal glazing. An apartment with a spirally-shaped circulation, where the white surfaces diffuse the natural light and the exposed bricks create internal contrasts, revealing somehow the terraced nature of the house.
