Hostel CONII

The intervention consists on the rehabilitation and extension of an old building dated from 1896. The building is inserted in the centre of the touristic city of Quarteira in Algarve. Originally the building was erected to dwell the workers from the fish canning industry that was expanding in the region in the last quarter of the XIX century. Since that the building was kept in the same family and has survived to the touristic boom since the 1970's. The fast growth of the city has transformed the cityscape from an average of two floors to more than six floors in the last forty years. The building has a squared footprint and all facades free; two for the street and other two for a courtyard.The strategy for the intervention wa... More

Facet House

Project • By CRÜ studio (former RÄS studio)Apartments


La Carmeta is the result of splitting a single apartment into two different entities –la Carmina is her analogy. We inserted an equipped bar that runs parallel to the dividing wall and is placed in a position that solves the circulation area on one side and the night-time zone on the other. This bar combines and sequences the storage of the apartment and the accesses to rooms and wet rooms.  More

Project • By CAVAAPrivate Houses


Casa Lluna, located in Vilanova i la Geltru's old town was imagined as a streetscape inside a domestic space. A series of doors and windows overlook the central area of the house. The demolition of part of the slab on the first floor multiplies natural light transforming this former carpenter's workshop into a peculiar streetscape. The introduction of natural light enhances also the spatial relation between the studio, the dining, and the living areas of the house. Ultimately, this new illuminated area appears as the core of the house around which the rest of the rooms are organized. To highlight the idea of a streetscape inside a house, the project focuses on the openings: balconies, doors and windows are framed with different wood mo...

The new Sotheby’s Real Estate Headquarters at Carvoeiro, Algarve, is on an existent building characterized by both local and traditional construction technics as well as materials. In order to save and recuperate the building having in mind the new program, we have decided to conduct some internal demolitions as the building was not well preserved.

The main façade had been transformed over the years therefore we have redesigned it according to what was believed to have been in the past. We have also introduced a cornice as it is tradition in most buildin... More
