Braga, 2016 (in completion) 
in colaboration w/ Gonçalo Maçães 

The strategy is based on the conversion of a vacant building in a 3-bedroom single-family house. A redistribution solution was chosen of the housing program for the entire useful area of the building, according to the client’s needs. It was intended to clarify the function of each space, establishing a vertical zoning strategy for this: ground floor with social areas and raised floor with private areas. Given the pre-existing situation, it was decided to reinforce the and the unitary character of the set for using a flat roof. This option also enhances the better use of interior heights as well as the greater structural stability of the building.
