For the building dating to the beginning of the 20th century, a restoration project was developed by taking advantage of today’s construction technologies in accordance with the historical identity of the building and its new function. Complex geometric skylights located in the center of the apartment have been canceled and these areas have been included in the new function by steel supports and floors. The original masonry wall structure is protected and strengthened by steel mesh.
