Project Description
The penthouse is an addition to an existing building, tucked under a pitched roof. In a first move, our intervention detaches the roof volume from the building on which it sits, articulating the penthouse below as a serie of glazed living spaces. The slicing of the roof allows further natural light  to upper and lower levels.Its belly acts as a triangulated drape that deforms to create triangular shaped openings to the inside. such deformation of internal surfaces’ transforms the roof in several detached elements.
