The listed national monument of the Casino Tower on the Luxembourg Moselle was to be made accessible for tourism.
The project of a tower within the tower allows thus to bring in appropriate access, a bathroom and a kitchen but also contemporary technology without mutilating the historic structure.
The tower is welded together on site in 12 mm solid steel and is both structural and architectural. Diverse functions and room layouts are thus organized over four floors and in the smallest possible space.
The stair tower contains heating, water techniques and electrical supply, as well as bathroom and kitchen, an office, a stove and the, for the region obligatory, wine fridge.
