After spending fifteen years abroad and in a profession involving commerce and lots of travelling around the world, the owner returned back to her hometown, deciding that she wanted to begin her own business. Her parent’s old apartment was ideal to host both her new home and a new work environment.

The creation of the office space had to be designed near the entrance and where the previous kitchen was. The client wanted a space that could be easily united or isolated from the rest of the house. The owner also wanted the office space, to be easily adjusted to serve as a future guest house.

The new kitchen was created where the old master bedroom was, giving a clear sense of the zones in the house. The new master bedroom made use of the previous corridor and gained a built in wardrobe.
