The house to rebuild, with three fronts, is to establish or re-establish a clear volumetric relation with the adjoining dwellings, although it is intended, simultaneously, is a degree of formal autonomy and relation with the terrain. Originally this house established a relation with a twin house situated on the plot to the north, which disappeared when it was subjected to a similar intervention. At present it is intended to re-establish a relation, though of completely different nature – by contrast and continuity. By contrast in volume, intended to be much lower and establishing a direct reference to the row house with wall moiety on the lot to the south, with only two floors, one being half buried; by continuity through the ground-floor and materials that characterize it.

In the perspective reading at the street level (from north to south) will be clear this continuity relation with the lower level, as well as the construction volume in harmony with the existent house to south, providing an excellent framework of the set.

The decision that will ensure the formal autonomy is its deployment as a courtyard-house, allowing bigger resting areas on the ground-floor and intimate relations between them, the outside spaces of the house and the interior of the block.

The east and west elevations are, at the upper level, totally blind and defined by textures glazed tile panels, characteristic of the city of Porto. The blind west elevation is justified by not violating the neighbouring parcels, as well as prevents the reading from this upper level extremely uncharacterized.
