is a project to extend a restaurant into the fabric of a

former single-family dwelling.

a solid concrete body located in a former lost space is

succeeded by a light layer of wood. Like a hermit crab, the

part exposed to the exterior is resistant while the one that

is inserted in the existing shell is soft and delicate.

the typological memory is preserved in the imprint of the

old floor plan on the floor of the new dining room.
