Casa da Marginal is a 1950s home in Esposende, Portugal that underwent a major renovation by
The ground floor houses all the social spaces, including a guest room, while the first floor houses only the main suite. Both floors of the home needed an expansion due to the home’s small size. Because of the home’s east-west orientation, PFArchStudio increased the original windows of the home to allow for beautiful expansive views of the Cávado River and its encounter with the Atlantic Ocean.
Since the home was designed as a vacation home, all the social spaces, including the kitchen, living/dining room, bathroom and guest room, flow into one another, without the need for corridors or antechambers.
