Casa Michel by Core Architects

by AAshir

Casa Michel is a luxury guesthouse located in Portugal, redesigned and extended by CORE Architects.


Casa Michel was a unique refurbishment and extension project involving an old stone ruin and a very rundown house. With careful planning and a keen awareness of the legal restrictions placed on preserving the ruin, the CORE team was able to connect the building and ruin, refurbishing the latter and transforming it into a luxury guesthouse. Though not without its legal and technical challenges, the project was completed in time and within budget, with a delicate balance achieved between affordability, sustainability, and aesthetics in this highly energy efficient build.
