Sober and thorough refurbishment of an early 20th century apartment building with five dwellings  for people who need a temporary housing before their lives settle down again in better conditions. Special attention has been paid for the three initial entrance doors to remain effective as to maintain the spirit of the former lively commercial ground floor facade.
