Inside a century-old structure built for automotive assembly and display, Vladimir Radutny Architects renovated a residence that was functioning poorly as a domestic space. In resolving the spatial problems inside this impressive shell, the firm crafted a living environment that evokes mental wellness and inspiration. Entry is through a low, wood-clad transition zone, mediating the overwhelming impact of the large industrial space. Scaled architectural components, material restraint, and theatrical lighting humanize the overall experience, while openness and clarity are maintained. As one moves between levels, a variety of unexpected vantage points and views are revealed. These meandering spaces are three-dimensionally distributed and assembled into a cohesive living space inside a raw industrial cloak.
