House on the 12th Floor Apartment

The present design for the apartment’s interior is a conceptual play for the interiors apartment on a 12th floor. The intention was for this apartment to symbolise the ideal of a house with a garden. As such, the interior design is based on two aspects: a functional diagram that gives ample space to all areas in the apartment along with a main hall that has an A-shaped ceiling, simulating a gabled roof, as well as a vertical garden on the dining area’s wall. The project successfully synthesises these formal concerns with a functional layout, even allowing of certain design pieces.

ADG Architecture Studio seeks to deliver not only closed, finished projects, but to have an impact on the project’s context. The firm’s trademark is not just architectural design but the process that begins always with investigation (historic, environmental, architectural) and contemplates: urban analysis, sustainability and landscape, working with technology in construction to come up with a single virtual model (BIM), and, together with domestic and foreign consultants, reaching even into post-occupation analysis and registry and documentation of the projects in books or videos. ADG is experienced in projects with diverse typologies and scales. We are proud to take on architectural rescue and reuse projects for buildings of a high artistic value and heritage
