The initial purpose of the project was the requalification of the two existing 1 story houses and the total demolition of the warehouse building in the North corner of the complex, fully degraded. The intended program is for 4 autonomous houses.

The project consists  in the vertical extension of the South corner house (by increasing an upper floor and attic) and the vertical and horizontal expansion of the “vinhos e tabacos” building, not only by increasing an upper floor and attic, but also by increasing its footprint area with a new construction in the North warehouse.

The new construction was treated as part of the existing “wines and tobaccos” building.
