The renovation of a house in the historic center of Castelo Branco wanted to represent the attempt to establish an urban revitalization with the occupation by younger age groups.
The proposal was to develop a project for an integrated health center, to be built in an existing room, with solar exposure to the south and east, conditioning the size of the rooms, based on the position of the existing windows.
The idea was born from the most elementary requests of the customer; a reformulation of the apartment that would allow a more fluid circulation, a more practical and visually clean environment.
The House of Lorrainen is a minimalist style residence with a total white look designed and built with the utmost attention to every detail by dmvA Architecten in Belgium.

The project focuses on the originality of some choices compared to other details left unchanged, and on resistant and fascinating materials.
