Dive into the heart of Buenos Aires with the Attic Reconstruction, a Grizzo Studio masterpiece. This top-floor apartment, skillfully transformed from a 90s exposed-brick chalet into a contemporary living space, offers the essence of house living within its 70 square meters (753 square feet). Featuring a unique blend of indoor and outdoor elements, like a balcony terrace and a backyard grill area, the design centers around the building’s original fireplace.

About Attic Reconstruction
Transforming a 90s Chalet into a Contemporary Apartment
Grizzo Studio has expertly converted the top floor of a 90s exposed brick chalet into a chic, mixed-use apartment. They leveraged the original loft’s charm to craft an apartment that feels like a house, despite its compact 70 square meters (753 square feet).
Innovative Design for Spacious Living
The designers removed tile roofs in two areas, adding cross ventilation and creating both a front balcony and a back terrace with a grill. The living room and kitchen wrap around the building’s original fireplace, which stretches up through the double-height space, flanked by a loft-style bedroom above the stair core.
Custom Furniture Meets Textural Diversity
Every piece of furniture was custom-made, like the unique black concrete dining table set into the fireplace. The apartment’s monochrome palette skillfully highlights the variety of textures used, from rough plasters and wooden ceilings to the raw finish of railings and stairs, enhancing the overall visual appeal.
