Baixa House

The intervention aimed for the adaptation and refurbishment of a “Pombalino” building, turning it into a short term rental unit.(BAIXA / HOUSE) Located in the heart of the historical area of Baixa, in , the building sits at the corner of Rua dos Fanqueiros and Rua da Conceição. Since its construction in the late 18th century, there has been a great deal of changes and modifications that deeply modified the original character of its fractions. As project strategy and as a way of reducing costs, the decision was made to accept its existing heterogeneous character.
