House around a chimney in Amarante

The renovation respects the building as it is, with its protected, listed main facade, the result of a vertical stacking of various extensions which have functioned well together. The rear facade, less cared for, rises only two levels.

The house is organized around a concrete chimney that pierces through all the floors. Using the same palette of materials, the rooms incorporate granite and marble elements between broken walls, and with the doors of greenish tones this generates compositions of spatial improvisation.
