The Cranes attic is situated in the city centre of Genoa, on the top of a building in the medieval neighbour on the old dock that protects the city for the Middle Age. The apartment has a 40 square meters surface, a small area that hosts a living room with open kitchen, a bedroom and a bathroom.

The bedroom and the livingroom are divided by a custom made piece of furniture that is a closet on the bedroom side and a set of stairs on the living room side. Another flight of stairs hung to the ceiling leads to the rooftop terrace, with a great view over the shipyards and their cranes.

This industrial context inspired the raw materials that characterized the refurbishment, such as the osb wooden panels painted in white, used for the furniture and the doors, or the folded metal sheet employed for the suspended stairs. The metal beams that reinforce the slab after the opening of the skywindow are highlighted by painting them with a white colour, generating a contrast with the gray ceiling.

The small flat is very sunny thanks to the skywindow and to the large windows allowing wide views of the downtown and of the harbour.
