O mau estado de conservação do piso da cave, cuja fraca iluminação não permitia o conforto da sua utilização, foi completamente reformulado através de uma ampliação em betão aparente que respondeu às novas exigências programáticas pretendidas pelos clientes: a garagem; a lavandaria; e a sala de costura.
