For the refurbishment of a terrace located in a classic house in buenos aires, Marantz focused on converting the roof into a new recreational spot by designing an area with green spaces, an orchard with its own irrigation system, and by expanding its living area by adding a grill and deck. A light structure was added, linking the two roof levels with a staircase that connects and saves space. This system adds a canopy where needed, and is left open for the areas that need natural light, like the orchard and part of the deck. One of the most important factors of the project was the budget, therefore the choice of materials was very important. Aesthetic and material quality and balance was achieved through the use of tinplate, tongue and wood joints, wood deck floor, and white plaster. The result is a green and environmentally friendly terrace that creates a place for recreation and relaxation for its owners.

Renovation of one floor of a commercial building. The main intervention was to integrate the several spaces by means of glass partitions with wood panels. The wooden frames with large glass panels allow to integrate with the external view with minimum visual interference. Wood was used on the floor, the working tables and the furniture of the bar and the living room, and natural tones of gray and terracotta were used on the upholstery. The reference to raw materials, with the use of concrete, rustic wood, and apparent pipes and beams create a simple and comfortable atmosphere. The concrete slabs were painted white and there is indirect illumination through rails and hanging spots. The view of the green surrounding residential neighborhood was emphasized inside with a reference of a green wall composed of dehydrated plants by the entrance.

· It is a renovation design of an old wooden flat house.
· Old houses in this place near the sea are often built in a flat for wind protection.
· Since this house has been built for a long time, proper repair was necessary for structure and waterproofing.
· The lifestyle at the time of construction was outdated. Therefore, we had to change floor plan and increase flooring according to current lifestyle.
· By increasing the heat insulation performance of the insulation material and the window, the internal space can be increased widely and hight-celling.
· The internal space has been expanded by securing the structural balance while taking advantage of the existing building structure.
· We carefully arranged inexpensive industrial products (such as corrugated boards and windows of ready-made items) that can be obtained easily, and construction methods (such as boarding and plastering
