In the centre of Milan, and old soap factory from the 19th century was transformed into lofts. One loft was restructured to become a combination of house and office. The building’s past was the starting point of the new project: a glass version of the “supervisor’s office” (with a 4,5m sliding glass door) was raised above the antique wooden work floor creating an office space that is isolated acoustically while still seeing the rest of the open space and preserving the abundant flow of light. During office hours, the dining room transforms into the meeting room by closing the kitchen in an oversized closet. The semi-underground decanting tubs were transformed into one big sleeping room with dressing room and bathroom.
