Restelo House by Joao Aguiar. Lisbon, Portugal
The main area of intervention was the rear part of the house, which was completely redrawn. Searching for a contrast with the main façade, we envisioned a fascia, opened by a series of windows and shutters resembling a pattern of traditional Portuguese tiles. This pattern works like a skin that filters the sun light and also protects the house from intruders. In order to give the top floor more habitable space, we created a mansard roof with three openings.
