“Our design work started with the study of structural reinforcement,” the architects explained. “After a series of careful comparisons, we decided to add a concrete layer to the original brick masonry walls. The intervention of the new concrete wall allowed us to re-manipulate the layout to some extent.” The living room, dining room and master bedroom were oriented towards the views. The
level comes with an original vaulted ceiling and accommodates a multi-functional living space. Additionally, since the captain’s family is Christian, this space is also intended to be a family chapel. The new concrete window frames protrude from the outside wall, which prevents excessive rainwater from entering the house.
