In the house it can be read three volumes that we wanted to identify very clearly.

On the nineteenth century main body of the house, it was maintained the style and all the features from this period, such as the masonry, the granite stone and the wooden frames;

A second volume recessed, built in wood structure and partition, we used the black slates in an attempt of dematerialization, in contrast with the white plaster of the lower floors;

The third volume is the garage which works as a body attached; it was built about ten years ago, ant it touches the nineteenth century building, creating in its coverage an outdoor patio.

Inside, the three rooms for the youngest were moved to the ground floor. In the intermediate floor the dining and living rooms blend with the kitchen in a single space, opened on the new outdoor patio;

The more reserved area of the house is located on the upper floor receded, the master bedroom and a small office area composes this area;

From the dialogue between the architecture and the design, we conceived a set of furniture which qualifies and optimizes the functioning of each space.
