The first time the architects saw the house they live in now, was on a summer afternoon walk. The nice but old vila made a big impression on them. The surrounding garden and lots of big windows promised a comfortable living space. They renovated the rented apartment of 80m2 with a low budget, about 2000 euros. The renovation process took nine months. The floor plan was left untouched, all fixed items were renovated (walls, floors, windows and doors). The furniture was partly renovated, partly designed and made by the architects, so it could fit the need of a working and living environment.
