Urban acupuncture. To intervene in territory the minimum, yet sufficiently as to improve the deficiencies found. This is how AGi architects has faced this extension of a built dwelling; a building that, appropriating of part of a public and residual space, managed to generate a house that improves the life of its occupants as well as the life of the inhabitants of the main dwelling.
Parting from the base of an existing staircase, a warehouse and a void, an evolving structure that enhances internal spaces and dignifies open space is generated, conferring a new scale.
