The attic of a 19th century villa had been taken in use in the 1930´s and further insulated in 1980 without any proper ventilation gaps. This had led to a need to renew the roof structures. The space was isolated with lineninsulation and woodfiber board. As wallcovering unprinted wallpaper was applied. The excisting wooden floors where painted with linseed oil paint. Bespoke bunk beds and drawers where planned to make use of every inch of space and height available. Everything was constructed in old shcool block board. A terrace, situated on top of a glass veranda, is accessed from the attic, as is the cliff next to the house via a narrow bridge.
