Design a family house without knowing to whom it´s meant to be, it’s like drawing a portrait without having a model… in the end we might design for ourselves. Having in mind the portuguese real estate market current situation, aiming for the design of signature houses is unrealistic for most offices, so we are left to intervene in the neo-liberal real estate market in the best way we can, according with the game rules.

A Family house with two studios. Our aim was to break up the relatively large volume as far as possible within the limitations and to create different rooms, terraces, covered outdoor spaces and courtyards. The two units are separate and yet a whole. The fantastic views along the North coast of Madeira are enjoyed fully. A large glass area in the South allows to take advantage of the winter sun in the otherwise north oriented house.

The Project is about the reconstruction of a building located in Lisbon’s historical city centre.
The existing building in an advanced degradation condition and lacking architectural quality was demolished and completely rebuilt, reshaping its compartmentalization, without distorting the memory of the environment in order to preserve the urban heritage of the neighbourhood, but guided by a contemporary intervention that marks the time of its execution.

Located in a context of urban expansion of a residential area of Mirandela, this lot had a set of well-defined rules, regarding deployment, volumetric and clearances. Given this, the design quickly developed into a compact and linear volume, organized on a square base plant, 11×11, where are drawn two floors.

This house is implanted in the middle of a pine wood forest, in Comporta, Portugal. The house was designed as a one level unit composed of two bodies, a social body, open to the outside and a private body, closed onto itself. In the social body, there´s an open space area composed of a living room, a dining room, an open kitchen and a social bathroom. Connecting the social area to the private, there´s a high corridor that commemorates the transition of spaces. In the private area, one finds two bedrooms, one bathroom and one suite with a closet and serving bathroom.

The Water Museum – property of EPAL (portuguese water company) – is a space that focuses mostly on the general aspects of the water, with an educational and scientific approach, while transmitting also some of the highlights of EPAL’s history and legacy to society (unlike most traditional company museums that only explore the historical nature of the company itself).

Located in Lisbon, the VERTIGO Pavilion was born in particularly complex context due to the physical reality where it belongs, the different functional needs, but specially due to the Portuguese economical situation. This is an area that intends to host a small cafe but also a reception to a sports center as well as a small shop to sell equipment and an informal lounge area. Perhaps a possible answer to such different specific needs is to not consider them in a strict and literal sense. When form follows the structure, the action can simply appear and the real use becomes unpredictable.

The house is located in a residential zone of Aveiro, in the northwest town center boundary. Its surrounding environment is characterized by heterogeneity of buildings, not always with a clear identity as a whole. Although with regards to deployments and distance there is some coherence. Appealing to some appeasement, there’s a similar volumetric mimicry, keeping the typology of 4 fronts and removals to the lot boundary. Setting a visual balance between pairs contributes to an improvement of this urban quality.

Love is an act of construction.
Miss’Opo is born from the desire to transport the Joy of intimacy to a more comprehensive life project, one of a public nature.
The Programme, six apartments, a restaurant space, a foyer/shop/gallery, a multipurpose space and technical areas are distributed throughout the building as if rooms in an old house.
