Renda, located in Marco de Canaveses, is a villa that brings contemporary elements to an area of rural reminiscences. The project was based on the expansion and rehabilitation of the existing building, altering its internal organization as well as the fenestrations design, that allows a better adaptation to the new program and a smoother integration in the proposed set. The adopted approach not only allows a better integration of the volumes on the land, but also enables the autonomization of buildings of distinct eras, which have different construction systems.
