The house emerges with two overlapping structures topped by a triangular element (the stairs leading to the terrace).
The lower structure, more transparent and more “fragile”, supports the higher structure, dimmer and containing more rhythmic openings, where small volumes – the balconies – punctuate to the South.

The Golf Hotel integrates a set of equipments from the Ponte de Lima’s golf course.
From this set of equipments, designed by Topos Atelier, the clubhouse was built between 1993 and 1995 while the touristic village, with 86 dwellings and started in 1995, is now complete.
The hillside terrain, sloping to the west, for the construction of the hotel, stretches from the touristic village (south) to the clubhouse (north).

Rehabilitation is a medical term that refers to the dynamic global process oriented to physical and psychological regeneration of the human being. In architecture is associated with the critical process to find the essential elements which are to remain, those that must be removed and new ones, prostheses, which may be added. This intervention follows two options: the archaeological recovery by mimesis with the past and the contemporary statement by comparison with present realities. The goal was to search for a balance between existing and contemporary. The building was designed in the 70s and has features that I was interested in keeping and which influenced the design of the new elements. I perceive the buildings not as static elements but as living structures that interact over us and that are part of the experience both at the program level or its aesthetic expression.
Here there isn’t a dreamlike inspiration. The process is little linear and the final design is the result of several moments of the project with several intersections with the client.
