In the initial section you see how Luis provides us with his strategy to make the intervention in order to add more support to the different beams and structures that needed to be fixed and reinforced. The open spaces are enhanced and more spaces are added in order to make the space feel larger, and you can even see the design for the roof intervention at the bottom.

[Let us also share your great work with our Community and participate in the Portfolio Challenge today.]
