Casa Siza is a remodeled historic home by Pritzker Prize winning architect Alvaro Siza with support from AD-100 interior designer Lucia Corredor, artist Bosco Sodi, and more.

Hailed as the preeminent figure among contemporary Portuguese architects, Siza has been honored with the prestigious National Architecture Prize for his remarkable contributions to architecture and cities. Renowned for his iconic works across Spain, such as the Zaida Building in Granada, the Meteorological Center in the Olympic Village in Barcelona, the Rectorate of the UA in Alicante, and Social Housing in Cadiz, Siza Vieira's impact transcends borders. Whether crafting masterpieces in Spain, Portugal, Mexico, or elsewhere, Siza effortlessly manifests his poetic vision of architecture. His buildings engage in a harmonious dialogue with the surrounding landscape, characterized by a pristine and timeless aesthetic in immaculate white. I

Set on top of an art gallery, Casa Siza unfolds on the grounds of a former one-story residence. The site, enveloped by the remnants of the original structure, meticulously retains the exterior walls and select interior brick partitions, crafting a harmonious blend of history and contemporary design.

The architectural canvas is divided into two realms: a dynamic art gallery occupies the ground floor, while a luxurious home graces the two upper levels. The entrance, an inviting courtyard, serves as the gateway to both spaces. Positioned along the axis of the street door, this entryway leads to an atrium that seamlessly connects to the gallery office, exhibition rooms, and a doorway serving as the grand entrance to the apartment.

Original windows and intricately designed iron grilles are carefully conserved or thoughtfully recreated, preserving the essence of the structure's historical character. The lofty heights of the first-floor rooms pay homage to the constraints imposed by the existing architectural footprint, further enriching the narrative of this captivating space.
