The project comes from the idea of ​​reforming the house, transferring part of the program from the first floor to the ground floor.

In a spatial optimization exercise, it was decided to dispense with a portion of the garage, thus freeing up a valuable area that was integrated into the patio, creating a more fluid and connected environment between the day area and the outside. This decision, in addition to providing greater space, encouraged coexistence and the enjoyment of the outdoors.

However, destiny had other plans. A setback or new street alignment forced the initial project to be reconsidered. The house, as it was conceived, would lose almost 50 m² between the ground and first floors. Faced with this unforeseen event, the owners, far from being discouraged, decided to turn it into an opportunity.

With ingenuity and creativity, it was decided to recover part of the lost surface through an extension on the second floor. This solution allowed the four double bedrooms and eight original beds to be preserved, maintaining the family essence of the home.

The expansion, in addition to compensating for the loss of space, provided the possibility of creating a new environment, a versatile space that could adapt to different needs</ strong>: a game room for the little ones, a study for working at home or a relaxation area to enjoy reading or a good coffee.

In this way, the home was transformed into a living organism, constantly evolving, adapting to the needs and circumstances of its inhabitants. An example of how architecture can be not only a refuge, but also a reflection of the resilience and vision of the future of those who inhabit it.
