Text description provided by the architects. The project is a renovation in a house designed in the 1950s. Due to its various transformations and the difference of uses required, we radically intervened the existing space.

Ground Floor Plan
Ground Floor Plan

The first step was the demolition of a small guest house to create a larger open area with gardens and swimming pools. Aiming at a more honest relationship with the outside area, we demolished the walls of the ground floor and restructured the space: the steel beams are supported on new perimeter walls built with demolition material.

The new ground floor supports an upper volume, treated in a lighter way, white, with the private program: office and bedrooms. The connection between the floors is marked by a new staircase and also by the residual void from the old staircase.

Thus, the home ultimately gets more natural light and ventilation.
