Enter the gap
The plot provides space for a workshop, allowing to work on a small dinghy, and a separate residential volume with bedrooms on the second floor. An additional office volume is inserted into the workshop, linked with a small bridge to the outside terrace and made accessible by an external flight of stairs.
