The Loft is located in Via Appia Pignatelli in Rome. An area which for many years this has been bound and each intervention of edification is forbidden, except the possibility to work in existing volumes. The area has high archaeological value, being close of ‘Appia Antica, in which there were built the first catacombs and early Christian basilicas of worship. An artifact dating back to the years immediately following the Second World War, for years used as a handicraft factory and machine shop, in the nineties has been transformed into business with adjoining warehouses.
The building shape, orientation and internal structure of this clearly and boldly designed panoramic restaurant develop out of the existing topography. The volume is nestled against the hillside on the ridge of the mountain. The external staircase to the roof terrace is following the original terrain and separates the building. Functional relationships and differentiation are made possible by the simplicity of the spatial arrangement.

A rock opens as a stairway and leaves paths to take in or out.

To sustain its ministry, North Church made the choice to move out of its over-sized and costly to maintain historic building.
The house is situated on a corner lot in the typical 30’s district ‘de Elzent’ against the natural landscape of the river Dommel valley, in the center of Eindhoven, The Netherlands. The existing main house is relatively small in structure, however the lot size is sufficient enough to resist an carefully threaded extension. An extension where extra comfort is added to the existing house.
