A roof pavilion with two terraces extends the living environment of an apartment towards the city scape.
President is an extension of a private housing in Brussels. The flat roof of a 3-storey building has been privatized. A structure of 8,25 meters by 10 meters is anchored in the party walls, it makes it possible to completely free the plan from the existing apartment and reinforces by this action its autonomy. The roof pavilion offers a living space, a kitchen, sanitary facilities and a laundry room. It connects to the renovated apartment below by a 4,25 meters high spiral staircase. Two separate outdoor spaces are created. On the south, a large terrace opened towards the city scape doubles the surface of the pavilion. On the north, an intimate terrass allows air circulation during hot days.
