Text description provided by the architects. The intervention was aimed to keep the preexistent use of the building – single housing -, seeking to improve its dwelling, salubrity, comfort and security conditions. On a conceptual level, the project is based on the rehabilitation of the existent house, developed in order to balance the infrastructural needs of a modern home with the delicacy of a centenary construction.
