It belongs to some of the older neighbourhoods of Bratislava, formerly known as „Ziegelfeld“. that has an interesting historical context, being a mix of industrial and residential nature. This imprint of historical feeling is still present there.

Attic Apartment in Bratislava

Long before the begining of the construction we found a space in the attic of an apartment house, that was not in very good condition. For a long time the attic had served as a pigeon’s nest and a place for drying clothes, which resulted in lowering the quality of space and construction.

What followed was cleaning the space and analysing the condition of truss and bearing structures. Due to unsatisfying results, some of the original beams were replaced by new and together they form the truss, which is essential part of the design.

Upon the old truss, a new one was built, also containing a layer of insulation. The whole roof is covered by sheatings made of steel withstanding seams in the color of anthracite.

With new roof standing, the authors had an Idea, that white color will be essential element in the whole apartment, visually enlarging its spaces. And at the top of it, white color will help to unite different shapes of connected spaces throught the interior. Also to improve the cubature of space, dormers were built in several rooms.

Part of the reconstruction of the Attic of the house was also a lift, which has noticeably improved mobility of all residents (especially the elderly) of the block.
