This remodelling project involved a private residence from the 1970s located on an attractive hillside site at the upper edge of the town of Stäfa. The house consisted of two full floors topped by a dark “attic volume”. This old attic was replaced with a new, sculptural roof volume with three large windows that echo the three newly created rooms inside. Two of the rooms, a study and a bedroom, are diagonally offset and open onto a spacious patio on the south. The third picture window reveals the expanded main living space on the first floor. A circulation hall extending over both storeys was inserted at the intersection of these three areas, creating exciting spatial relations and optimal lighting for the various areas. The added storey was designed to look like a parasitic volume set off both in colour and materials from the rest of the house.
