Located in the Serra de Grandola, the plot is characterized by cork oaks and pines forest that dominates the accentuated slope of the landscape on a promontory facing west.
The settlement of the new construction is strictly related to the topography and the surrounding landscape. The compact shape that characterizes the house, aims to limit human intervention in the uncontaminated area. The spaces are organized in a single floor around a square patio that through transparent surfaces and lodges opens to the landscape.

The Caramão neighborhood in Lisbon, was built between 1940 and 1945 on the slope of Ajuda facing the Tagus and above the Restelo neighborhood.
Along with other social housing in Lisbon, such as Caselas, this neighborhood was designed to represent small villages that provided, in the style of adjustment, a similar type of life of the more humble part of society, to which they were accustomed to and also occupied at the date of its construction.

Along with the project Pedras Salgadas Park by architects Luís Rebelo de Andrade and Tiago Rebelo de Andrade, came the challenge of creating an object that could recreate the fantasy of the tree houses.
The project for these houses was developed in partnership with the Modular System Company. The idea was to get an object that would be far away from the orthogonality and from pre-established concepts associated with the modular construction.

On the highest point in the city of Braga the different temporal strata of the city can be seen. This is the location to construct the building, connected to this visual memory. The connection of the present occurs in the courtyards of the building, the location of social activity at the center, the repetition extends into the city’s areas of activities. These connections are registered non-explicitly in the subtraction of masses form the construction of the building, extending it to the city squares, main streets, buildings and landscape. There is a formal and social relationship between the city and the building. A project for the rehabilitating people with problems with substance abuse assumes the same fragmented relationship of city life at your feet. The organization of the architectural elements, regardless of the different functions that compose the program, it provides a formal response for each individual space and is revealed as a tool to transforming it into a piece of the city. The building consists of two platforms which fall within several blocks seemingly independent, creating two courtyards: one facing the city and the other an interior courtyard.

It is not necessary to create a world, but the possibility of a world.
Jean-Luc Godard in Reflexivity in Film and Architecture, 1985.
Reflectivity as concept, as much in its use in film or literature as in its appropriation by architecture, refers to that moment when the work suddenly draws focus onto itself as a construct, and as a fictional reality.

This intervention seeks to maintain only the two main existing facades of the building, at North and East, given the high degree of deterioration of the overall volume. Although the existing building is not a remarkable architectural example and with construction quality, contributes to the cohesion of the urban image of the set to which it belongs, so the maintenance of facades allow the continuity of the dialogue between the building and the context in which it operates.

The choice of location for deployment of the buildings aimed to make the most of the view of the terrain. At the same time it takes a small promontory to the location of a yard, located to the west of the dwelling, for the parking and maneuvering of vehicles.
The outside form resulted from the intention of creating situations of full/empty, adopting a composition of parallelepiped volumes, which create misalignment through its two courtyards, prolonging the experience of the house to the outside.
