JoLa House, Vila do Conde, Porto / A2OFFICE

This project consisted in the remodeling and expansion of a townhouse, opening some interior spaces, and bringing more natural light to the interior of the house.

The entire lower floor has been transformed into a continuous space, although with perfectly delimited and hierarchical functions, thus allowing a greater sense of space and brightness.

A new wooden staircase, lit by a generous lantern, connects the two floors and becomes the binding element.
