Renovation and extension of an existing typical madeiran house. The old, traditional and the new, contemporary part do not mix up but have each their own individuality. A covered area connects the two and offers common outside space. The new building forms at one part a patio with the existing, while its outer corner seeks the view of the cliff and the ocean to the south-east. The large but shallow water tank in the north will be maintained and transformed into a chemical-free “swimming-pond”.
