ABP

Renovation and extension of a 1960s penthouse flat
2006-08 / Mannheim, Germany
Design to completion
[Private client / with Motorlab Architekten, Mannheim, Germany]

Our client bought the top floor flat in this typical german 1960s apartment building including exclusive rights to a large formerly communal roof terrace. Since the size of the terrace was significantly too big in relation to the actual flat it was a logical step to claim some of it as further living space by building a roof extension.

A strong design incentive was the use of industrial translucent materials. From the facade of the roof extension to its overhanging terrace roof, internal doors, and furniture fittings, all the way to the wetroom wall linings, different kinds of innovative sheet and panel materials were installed throughout the project.
