OVERALL CONCEPT

This study defines a design methodology for the rehabilitation of buildings of architectural, historic or cultural value for a community.

The intention of this study was to uphold the urgency to appeal for the preservation of historical elements in the design process in the eventuality of a reconstruction, in order to avoid generic, uninteresting and uncharacterised interventions, as well as irretrievable loss of our architectural heritage.
 
This study aims, therefore, to establish a proposal of improvement of the interiors for this purpose, based on the protection and preservation of the elements that are considerate of architectural, historic or cultural value.
