With the intention of bringing out the simple and intelligible volumetry of the boiler room, the renovation of BFV preserves and fills the existing but empty space of 30 dwellings on four different floors. Apart from the awning and other recently added elements (such as stairs and elevator etc.) which were removed, the main layout and structure of the building was not changed. as a result, the new design retains the spirit of the old construction and goes beyond simply reconstructing the missing or damaged elements, adding them as distinct wood details and bringing a touch of freshness to the project.
