Casa da Paz is a project which remodels a 1990s-built detached villa located adjacent to a golf course in Algarve, Southern Portugal. The project overhauls an existing building to adapt it to the lifestyle of the current owners. The request included an extension on the roof terrace to create a family room. In addition to the new room, the process began by thinking about the current spaces and how to make them more functional.

The clients asked for a touch of Portuguese design in the house, the concept, therefore, features colour schemes like orange and blue and an arrangement of historic tiles (a few years old tiles), decorating the wall in the dining area, plus the floors are strictly paved with white marble from Estremoz.

The entrance hall was tight and dark and strangled by the volume of the kitchen. This space on its own was in need of a profound renovation. A double-height area at the entrance was created to achieve an airy space and the kitchen was relocated and restructured to communicate with the living and dining area.
