Text description provided by the architects. Reconstruction of an house in the very dense urban environment of the fishing area of Caxinas, Vila do Conde.

The very subdivided pre-existing ground floor, gives place to an open social area, defined mostly with plans, some of them curves. Entrance, living-room and kitchen, all connected, almost the same space.

The house is vertically linked by an omnipresent  spiral staircase, that connects the ground floor to an open attic, fun area. In between, the bedrooms floor.   The presence of the white and light, in opposition to the traditional darkness and chaos.

Outside, a plain bright color against the neighboring multi-color ceramic tiles. In the ground floor, a thermowood coating, in different directions camouflaging a garage door.
