An existing weekend house was converted to add comfort and space. In order to obtain a larger volume of space without significantly increasing the building dirnensions, the direction of the roof ridge was rotated along the building's diagonal.
The foundations and ceiling of the ground floor were preserved. All other superstructures — the outer walls and the roof — were disrnantled and replaced by a timber construction. A large cut-out in the ground floor ceiling creates an open entrance to the newly created space. The cantilevered balcony slab was shortened in length with reference to the interior ceiling cut-out, and the balcony railing adapted accordingly.
Two additional roorns were built under the new roof. These serve as separate bedrooms and create an interesting volurne in the living space below due to the resulting variation in roorn height.
