Chão das Giestas House in Guarda, Portugal by AVA Architects

Wednesday, January 18th, 2012

Article source: AVA Architects

The house evolves having the planimetry of the city (Guarda-Portugal) as a background. The place, in peripheral context, is profoundly different from the center because of the recently urbanization, the natural territory was depersonalized by the topographic changes caused by that. The existing public space is builded without an organisation that matches the topography of the place, forcing an artificial and uncharacterized lotting, Nowadays, there are different morphologies and typologies of construction.
