Quadratura architects have made the reform of an attic in a single home to rework it into a bedroom and playroom. Ending the walls and adding skylights is so laborious and cost-intensive, flooring takes a again seat. This attic was divided into three zones: a bedroom, dressing area and master toilet. In homes constructed after 1960 or so, the roofs are normally built utilizing prefabricated wooden trusses, which crisscross throughout the attic house.
We designed an progressive structural system that we integrated into the prevailing ground and roof construction, thereby making a self-supporting diaphragm. A straight-run stair will chew up 10 to 14 feet of ground area; a stair designed with an intermediate landing and two runs needs about eight ft on the decrease degree.
To reinforce this feeling it was decided to make use of laminated wooden floors in gentle shade (Bleached White Teak), a pavement that we actually appreciated, and persevering with the same was additionally installed within the lavatory thus attaining unification between the 2 areas.
An attic is usually the coldest or warmest a part of the home, depending on the time of yr, so chances are you’ll want to add extra insulation. The first proposal is divided into two areas: a residing space with lounge, dining room and large kitchen, and sleeping with a main bedroom, dressing room and a non-public bathroom.
Simple structure, absolute white surfaces and the sculptural presence of a staircase dominating the dwelling space: the purity of this space created by renovating an attic in Bergamo is underlined by the distinctive parquet flooring, skilfully flooded with mild from the skylights.
