_The aim of this competition was the refurbishment of three adjoining buildings in the oporto historic city center. The proposed design is a reaction to the rehabilitation politics used in the oporto Historic Area.


_The existing buildings are characterized by a high state of degradation and by their very small size. After the removal of all the wreck of the interior, only the major stonewalls will be kept.


_Three volumes are inserted on the empty existing buildings. These are built in a light wood structure, like the old constructions, separated from the facades, distinguishing the new and the existent.
