This Home in Prague was Transformed into a Studio

Czech firm A1 architects remodeled a two-hundred-year-old home in Prague into a live-in studio residence.

The architects incorporated a wooden building into the original stone structure, forming a plan that could accommodate both a studio and residential areas. The architects left the central axis of the house as it was, opting for a cross-shaped plan made from two intersecting spaces. The original stone walls and new timber joints were left exposed, offering a nice contrast between the new and old. For the sake of distinction, a hallway was put in place to delineate the working and living areas.

The former worker's cottage now features a spiraling concrete staircase, complete with a steel handrail, that ascends to a three-bedroom loft.
