The clients wanted a more spacious living area at the 1970s property located in the agricultural area of Adligenswil. This was a major challenge for the architects, as only minor changes could be made to the volume of the building due to the location. The exciting idea of the architects was to transform the function of the garage into a kitchen, thereby extending the internal living area.
Following the conversion, access to the kitchen is via a 1-metre high elevation, bridged by a step containing concrete. Eating, living and cooking blend together into a spacious room unit. The broken up segments on the two different levels create a loft atmosphere in the rural residence.
