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· The lifestyle at the time of construction was outdated.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

Casa dos Patios project aimed to refurbish an eighteenth-century urban villa, located in one of the most charismatic streets of the city center.
The building which had had throughout its existence diverse uses, such as services, housing, and even worked as a school, had been abandoned and in a state of pre-ruin for decades.
The project sought to create a set of apartments and shops, keeping all the structure and spatial concept of the preexistence.

On the ground floor the main operation consists in adding the volume of the f ormer garage to the living room area and therein placing the new kitchen. Not only provides this transformation the required additional living space, but also the whole spatial organisation and the visual relations are completely redefined. Previously, the entrance, the kitchen and the living romm were rather disjoined from each other. Now they come together in a generous spatial entity which is articulated by the new kitchen. The floor of the former garage is a worktop-hight below the living room. This difference is preserved, which results in the worktop being on the same level as the ground floor. The sunken position of the kitchen generates interesting and surprising visual relations. Materialized in concrete and massive oak, the kitchen is both a structural element and a spatial piece of furniture. The entrance receives a sober overhaul and a modest wardrobe in order to clean up the previous spatial Situation.
