House next door

Miguel Gomes as Architects

Object of curiosity for being near and at the same time unknow.


When the house next door becomes ours, its renovation turned into a challenge, where to start and when to end it? Answering quickly to the first question, it was decided to keep what was considered good and renew all obsolete elements; the second one turned more complex , culminating with the design of custom handles, lighting and tables


This flat renovation sought to increase interior brightness hence, in order to achieve it, walls were demolished as well as invasive architecture elements, while introducing warm and reflective materials such as wood and metals
