Founded in 2010,  PABLO PITA  is a Porto-based design studio that aims to create balance between strong concept approaches and filigreed intervention. Established within a partnership between former University of Porto  students, Pablo Rebelo and Pedro Pita, the studio promises results towards every client’s needs.

Recently they enhanced a century-old townhouse located on a busy street in the center of the portuguese city,  into a contemporary home which is suitable for a small family. The project is called Casa Boavista and features a set of skylights that allow plenty of natural lighting into its interiors.

The architects were asked to transform the aged building into a minimal, private and comfortable home, on which they responded with a new storey on top and the extension of the ground floor into a garden area. Then, three skylights were added along the three floors.

One is located in the central staircase, the second above the ground-floor kitchen and dining space, and the third above a second-floor bathroom.

According to the designers the skylights allow visual relations between the floors while exploring the main features of the old construction.

The building’s layout is very simple and minimal. The ground floor for example, includes a parking garage and a large living and dining space. Another living room is located on the first floor along one bedroom, while two more bedrooms are situated at the third storey.

This expansion allows plenty more room for guests and far larger living spaces than before.
