The upper floor is completely modern, minimalistic and without traditional elements. The imposing pitched roof and the small openings domain positively the ambiance of this space, in the same time they also create low parts of the room and limited natural light. To face these problems, oblique but vertical walls (with integrated several uses like library, kitchen, cupboards, etc.) are introduced avoiding these low parts and also creating large embrasures, which are reflecting and distributing the natural light into the whole room. The complete room becomes one entire continuous space. The kitchen, as an important element, is placed in the centre of the room, where the ceiling is high.
To connect the two floors, the entrance hall, the corridor and the master bedroom at the 6th floor area are also designed in the modern minimalistic way. Once entering the apartment the modern ambiance invites you and a skylight admits natural light to enter in the centre of the apartment and it also leads to the upper floor. To create a union the white colour is used for everything like walls, ceilings, floors and doors.
