Trastevere had a number of stable buildings that were in use until the early 1900s. These buildings were very large compared to the average houses in the area and had large roof trusses. Therefore the maximum ceiling height in this loft apartment is approximately 10 meters. Large rooms with high ceilings, the dimensions of which were obviously designed specifically for horses and carts.

The challenge with this project was to meet the customer’s wishes regarding the bedroom. They wanted a separate room from the open plan living area downstairs where the voices from the ground floor cannot be heard. The open living room with dining area and reading corner was planned there. The architects have enclosed this quiet bedroom requested by the customer in a metal box supported by a large column. The black metal plates contrast with the wooden floors and ceilings. Everything looks even more beautiful and cozy thanks to the effective lighting that emphasizes certain design elements.
