Silver Wood House in Portugal by Ernesto Pereira

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

Article source: Ernesto Pereira

“Simply … the SilverWoodHouse … any attempt to adjectives falls short of the final experience of contemplation … congratulations and thanks Ernesto”

These were the words of my clients Rui and Marisa when asked about SilverWoodHouse. I could not be more impressed by the answer, on my way to see the architecture. A challenge, an interpretation, a creation, by me, not for me, but for someone.

House in Mouraria, Portugal by José Andrade Rocha

Sunday, March 8th, 2015

Article source: José Andrade Rocha

This house in the historic neighbourhood of Mouraria, Lisbon, suffered many transformations over the years that compartmentalised the space. The relation with the street was under explored and the connections between social and private areas were ambiguous.
The intervention aimed to open the social area to the street, uniting the living room and the kitchen in a gesture that occupies the whole extension of the façade, protecting the bedrooms and allowing serenity or agitation in distinct moments.

HOUSE IN ESTORIL in Lisbon, Portugal by TARGA atelier

Wednesday, March 4th, 2015

Article source: TARGA atelier

The House in Estoril refurbishment project has taken as starting point the pre-existing layout with some relevant spatial qualities deserving to be preserved and explored. Conversely, it was necessary  to adapt the house to contemporary life, to become functional and in line with the expectable comfort requirements. The central area is assumed as the aggregator element, minimalist and debugged, using the stairs as a  continuous and fluid gesture, to link the two clearly distinct floors: the ground floor gathering the social areas of the house, is quite fluid and all the adjacent defining spaces establish a complementary relationship with the square central hall. The bookcase intersects the volumetry and provides a more human scale opposing to the organic line of the guard. The main entrance releases  the discovery of a large space with double height and surrounding areas (living room and dining room at opposite ends) and leads to the kitchen which gained new proportions and closes the last side of the square. The “1st” floor functions as a walking gallery to provide access to the rooms, peeking over the lobby. The colors and materials were selected with the primary aim of emphasizing the simplicity of the new geometry design and promoting pre-existing qualities
