Remnant Revitalization: Townhouse Walls & Facade, Refilled


Little was left of this small abode in Portugal when it came time to convert this shell of a home into a workable residence once again – only the crumbling facade and some wooden beams were intact, leaving much to be filled back in.

The architects of Ezzo┬ápreserved and refurbished what was left, then fleshed out the rest in clearly-contrasting modern simplicity – white walls, bright wood and simple geometries on upper floors.

On lower floors, granite masonry ties the building to its neighbors physically and visually, also reinforcing a sense of these being below grade (which they are, with respect to the raised level behind the house that starts a story up).
