A breath of fresh air! The conversion of this old workers’ house is the architect’s achievement.
My contribution consists in the colour scheme of the walls and ceilings and in the choice of colours of the linoleum floor, creating a distinctive mood for each room. The front door opens directly into the kitchen, which is why this room was specially designed – featuring a striking open staircase – and may rightly be considered the heart of the house. The hand-painted ceramic tiles on the kitchen wall are designed to reinforce this impression.
