Text description provided by the architects. The house belongs to a band of housing built 60 years ago that is nowadays a very quiet neighbourhood of Lisbon. It was a renewal and an extension of the existing area by the alignment of the rear facade with the facades of the two neighbouring dwellings. The renewal was complete and included also the demolition of the pre-existing building, retaining only the the main facade.

The morphology of the new building, facades and design coverage, intended to mirror the housing adjacent to the south, preserving the original axis of symmetry.

The idea was to define the core element composed of the staircase and fireplace, around which is the structured set of the three floor levels, uneven and "carved" in order to adapt to altimetry from both sides of the street.
