The project brief required the provision of a working space and a sleeping area in a 10m2 room of a ground floor apartment at an “Altbau” building in Friedrichshain, Berlin.
The 3.40m height of the room allowed the sleeping area to be located at the top part, leaving the ground floor free for a generous workspace.

The clients wanted the staircase to the mezzanine to be comfortable and sturdy, but with a light appearance. Ideally to be used also as a bookshelf for few books. The structure was designed with square steel profiles lacquered in white, screwed, being this easier to disassemble. The apartment’s structural walls helped to liberate the steel structure from some pillars. The perforated steel staircase allows not just a comfortable access to the sleeping zone but the desk area to have natural light. The first three steps of the staircase were planned as an oak wood storage piece, with felt at the bottom, in order to be more easily mobile, without damaging the existing floor.
