GOeTHe is a minimalist apartment refurbishment designed by Luxembourg-based office 2001. The faint attempts of mid-century domestication were stripped of this derelict early 20th century apartment. Two precise inserts redefine a contemporary dwelling comfort: a 1,5m narrow glass box integrates a separate toilet and a bathroom. The box in translucent glass is as much a spatial as a lighting element, separating and framing an open kitchen from the entrance. In the living room, a folded mirrored wall reflects and thus visually doubles the irregular space. The mirror’s shelving structure defines a cell space, which is office and guest room.
