From the architect. On the site we found ruins of a house waiting to be recovered. We preserved the limit walls and we designed an exterior space, allowing the new house to emerge from the old.


At the same time we harmonized the smalls existing volumes that follow the house next door. The main floor houses the kitchen, the living room and a small studio, while the first floor is a more private area with two bedrooms.
