Reinventing the space that time stole was our task this time.
The history of intervention is simple. A house, safe haven for a family of four elements, no longer has the space needed for their everyday experiences.
The old subdivision of “social area” of the house, where reigned the space static and mono-functional, has now given rise to new spaces with dynamic ability to clump together and become a single, increasing the versatility of this area and making it more luminous. In the private area of the house, we clean corridors and corners of their excesses, we have walls that are cabinets in order to fix the many things we needed to fix.
This rationalization, has provided all areas of greater breadth and versatility, making the old spaces have a new life, full of light and color.
A new house inside an old container, full of memories, and with many new stories to tell.
