Competition: 1st prize | Completion: May 2001 | Client: Sociedad Azucarera Larios, S.A. | Costs: 5,5 Mio. Euro per building | Surface: 11.000 qm

The renovation of three townhouses located in the Calle Larios inside of the historical core of the city of Malaga describes a procedure of surgical replacements, which can be applied like a master plan to all the houses of the Calle Larios. The reconfiguration of the courtyards and the interiors play a key role in this process. By the use of clearly structured courtyard-facades, the old but buzzing townhouses gain a calm nucleus.
