We carried out a remodeling project in the building where Spefar Laboratories is located. For this project we had to adapt a family dwelling, with historical characteristics, built in 1925 by Architect Mr. Acosta y Lara to be used as offices of the mentioned laboratory.


This was a delicate project as the facilities needed for the laboratory were not contemplated in house that had been built in 1925. On the other hand, the restoration process had to recover the original aspect of the house, which was deteriorated by the passing of time.


Due to the mentioned issued, we planned to act over the strategic points in order to assume the change of destiny while the historical values were restored precisely so as to keep the spirit and image of the building. This project was carried out together with Architects Studio Baptista + Baptista.
