Light house by architects Barbosa & Guimarães - Porto, Portugal - 2004-2011 Photographs: Arqf – José Campos. The project involves the rehabilitation of the pre-existing granite masonry, introducing in its edge, a prism fully coated copper, and with a volume identical to that we thought it was the pre-existent. This new approach, organizes three units: a commercial space, an office and housing.
This is a really well thought out loft conversion project. We love the simple folded steel shading device around the dormer windows and how the architect has used matching roof tiles to seamlessly integrate the new addition with the existing roof. The stand-out feature of this design, however, is that window that folds up and over to become a skylight, bringing both a view of the trees beyond and the sky above into the bedroom space.
