This is a pretty interesting project from h2o Architects, who was required to enlarge the living area, without touching the structure. Basically, the request was to realize: increase the living space without touching the structure, create 2 bathrooms instead of the one existing, preserve the number of beds, 8 beds in 55m2, all while maintaining separate circulations for each. It sounds like mission impossible. [source]
In order to achieve the request, h2o chose to inverse the way of seeing it. Rather than trying to fit the furniture into the apartment, they decided to fit the apartment into the furniture! So they created a function curve wall which links all functions, creates a large living space and opens up the panoramic views on the mountains. Private space is delineated by curtain, and peaceful sleeping nooks are all over. The central space is all white, leading into the matching wrapping terrace. The interior atmosphere is inspired by the mountain and cabin feel, reinterpreted in a contemporary manner. Clever and cozy design, it will be the best place to rest after a full day of skiing. Do you think so?
