The renovation project dealt with an apartment with unique characteristics: a covered area shaped in a narrow, linear and irregular geometry surrounded by balconies on its three sides. In order to take advantage of the strong presence of these backyards, the project sought to build a house on top of a building. The intervention used the extension locations of this continuous balcony to define the internal programs – seeking to identify the best way to establish dialogues between interior and exterior: next to the unit’s access and connected to the wider section of the balcony, the kitchen and living room are configured. Of being; near the corner and overlooking the Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish, a water tank and external seating area are installed, which is associated with the apartment’s main bedroom; and finally, in the more regular geometric extension of the balcony and facing north, the laundry room, second bedroom and guest bathroom are located.

Le Condé House / Limdim House Studio

Taking inspiration from Patrick Modiano’s novel “In the Café of Lost Youth” (Dans le café de la jeunesse perdue), we endeavor to craft a structure that acts as a repository for the proprietor’s bygone years—a repository for a youth that once wandered aimlessly. Nestled within a block of townhouses, erected some two decades ago, the apartment now wears the marks of time, presenting a formidable challenge to the design team, who must tread lightly due to the potential repercussions on the adjoining units.
