This urban house is the result of the transformation of an old apartment. Four operations are made in relation to the original organization with the new program. First the uses of the two floors are inverted; the bedrooms are placed on the first floor, liberating the upper floor and its terrace to the common spaces. This terrace is occupied by a lightweight structure that integrates the kitchen, living and dining room. The covering of this space is used to create an expansion that drives the transformation of the existing water tank in an aerial pool. Finally a shading device incorporates the irregularities of the neighboring walls.
