Always seeking to maintain the original decorative and constructional characteristics of the building intact, the work performed on the apartment should be analyzed and understood not as restoration, but as an extension, putting to good use the “empty” space of the building in relation to its original characteristics. This is a single level apartment developed within a space that had a total ceiling height of 5.20 m, which can be fully seen in the living and dining rooms and bedrooms. In the other spaces the original ceiling height is hidden by a false ceiling that creates a lower ceiling height in circulation and service areas (corridors, bathrooms, hallways and kitchen). Objectival in nature in order to set it apart from the work performed in 2006, the mezzanine occupies all of the spaces where the ceiling height is less than 2.80 m, namely in the living and dining rooms and the bedrooms. It is precisely in these spaces that the connection is made between the two levels.
