Transforming a forgotten 1920’s manor house in the heart of Luxembourg,
To further improve ventilation without sacrificing space the old light shaft was replaced by a cool, walkable glass slab on the second level. The attic level bedrooms enjoy a flood of natural light thanks to the presence of six roof windows even as the original timber structure here was preserved and restored. Repairs to the roof were carried out to improve the insulation of the house and avoid any future leaks while a simple color palette and Scandinavian style décor give the home an inviting and polished appeal.

The technical and structural requirements to integrate these constructions into the existing timber frames of the roof and slab demanded a solid and yet discrete and integrated solution by architect, structural engineer and metalworker. The clear forms, lines, materials and colors were deliberately kept subtle and toned down to emphasize the owner’s diverse collections.
