The two apartments on the upper floor of the 15th century townhouse under urban heritage protection had already been merged into one. Despite the merge, the two parts lacked any commonality. To solve this problem, the room layout and use of the two apartments were rethought from the ground up. The largest room, providing access to breathtaking views over the Rhine from its terrace, was designed as a living and dining area.
A generous built-in closet in the antechamber found a new purpose as a dressing room, and the room with a view of Kleinbasel's banks of the Rhine now serves as an office, from where it blends into the sleeping area. By purposefully blending new elements with existing furnishings and found architecture, the two formerly disparate parts now appear as a unified whole.
