A HOUSE FOR AN ARTIST
Part of a group of four early 20th-century buildings, Casa DL, in the heart of Porto, in one of the busiest areas of the city, is a residential project that sought to respond to customer needs - "a house for an artist" was the starting point for URBAstudios and the architect Nuno Alves de Carvalho.
Divided into two separate units, this building consists of an entirely independent apartment and store. The commercial space is located on the ground floor with direct access to the outside, while the first floor hosts the household, with a floor and attic. In accessing the house we go through a gate, shared by the four buildings, which moves the residents to the inside of the construction.
