Lar Casa de Magalh in Ponte de Lima, Portugal by J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design

Inside a white house lives a lady without progeny. She donates the land, home and attachments to build a home for the elderly. She only requires that the construction be done prior to her death. It all starts from the house; it is the center and the symbol.

The building of the home for the elderly results from the expansion of the platform floor of the existing house. In the center are built two courtyards, one social and one for services, dematerializing the built mass, as if a part of the building had been removed, exposing its interior. You realize there’s life and movement.

Outside, the rhythm of the facade refers to the tree trunks, a blending option, highlighting the existing houses, white-washed.
