거실, 주방, 침실 및 욕실의 3개 주요 공간으로 구성되어 있던 100평방미터의 오래된 주택을 개조하여, 독창적 구조의 수영장과 사교공간 및 욕실이 겸비된 2개의 침실까지 갖춘 새로운 주택으로 탈바꿈되었다. 도시 중심부에 위치하면서도 고요한 실내 환경이 집 안에 잠시 멈추고 있는 듯한 느낌을 준다.

The main access to the property is located at the right extreme of the first bay, which develops through a lobby that serves as a pause between urban reality and the serene interior environment. The rest of the bay had enough space to develop a bedroom with an internal bathroom.
All the social area is located in the second bay. The living room, the dining room and the kitchen are developed in n a single space, which is linked to the third bay through different windows that help fuse space visually and functionally.
The third bay of the property was the more intervened one. The poor condition of the original slab was replaced with a light one, which contrasted with its materiality concept. Sheltering the terrace, the concrete slab, the structure of it passes tangent to the existing walls without touching them.
