A2OFFICE renovated an old townhouse in Porto, Portugal.
-text provided by the architects
The aim of A2Office was to remodel and expand Jola House by opening some interior spaces and by bringing more natural light to the interior of the house.
The entire lower floor has been transformed into a continuous open space, with perfectly delimited and hierarchical functions, thus allowing a greater sense of space and brightness.
A new wooden staircase, lit by a generous lantern, connects the two floors and becomes the binding element.
