PM House in Aveiro, Portugal by M2.senos

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Article source: M2.senos

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.

“House with four houses” in Portugal by Prod architecture & design

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Article source: Prod architecture & design

This holiday house for a family of four is located in the north of Portugal. It’s shape is defined by the same number of individual volumes.They have similar dimensions but distinct orientations. Three of the volumes are orthogonally organized around a core, whilst a fourth rotates to match the direction of an existing neighbouring building. The proximity between the two constructions led to a desired dialogue. The modest dimensions of the existing building determined the scale of the house while the vernacular identity influenced its layout. Each volume has a two slope roof. Besides emphasizing its individuality it enabled to increase the plasticity of the composition.

S. Victor Lofts in Porto, Portugal by A2OFFICE

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

Article source: A2OFFICE

This project presents a rehabilitation of an 19th century old building with an unusual triangle-shaped planimetry, with an deployment area of only 52m², following a housing program consisting of 4 lofts in open space.

This condition has determined much of the interior spatial organization solution, where a new staircase plays a major role.

The facade colors have been restored, with new frames. The wooden structure of the floors was maintained and strengthened.

Upstairs, the original volumetry of the building was restored, revealing a small terrace that crowns the intervention.

CA Crédito Agrícola in Viana do Castelo, Portugal by Marques Franco Arquitectos

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Article source: Marques Franco Arquitectos

Designing a bank is always a delicate affair. On the one hand it is important to highlight the transparency and accessibility necessary to an institution that holds our money. On the other hand, it is always necessary to ensure a sense of security and robustness. The exterior of the building looks for that, the ground floor is transparent, easy to see through and access, the upper floors have less fenestrations and more solid construction.
