Externato Carvalho Araújo in Braga, Portugal by J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Article source: J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design

A large property nowadays too divided. We tried not to aggravate their characterization and to safeguard the reference of the existing building.

It was important for us to preserve the environment of the existing entry of the manor house, and reduce the environmental impact of new volumes, looking in all to make a new front to enrich the future city park.

Atelier de Jardim AS in Vale do Ave, Portugal by J. M. Carvalho Araújo, Arquitectura e Design S.A.

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Article source: J. M. Carvalho Araújo, Arquitectura e Design S.A.

A couple of doctors gather friends and colleagues to meetings and thematic workshops. Without adequate space in the current house, they requested a small multifunctional building for an adjacent parcel.

On the edge of town, in the slope of the valley, lie the two terrains at different heights. In one terrain, overlooking the other, there is a detached house in the center. The other has a beautiful informal garden, with large trees and a lake that anticipates the feeling of the river lower down. It was essential to maintain this view over the garden.

Escola Secundária de Lousada in Portugal by J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design, S.A

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Article source: J M Carvalho Araújo Arquitectura e Design, S.A

The intervention uses part of the existing buildings, primarily structural elements and some facades. We used this preexistence to provoke an initial impetus for the project, creating greater diversity.

We had particular interest in the idea of evolution from a school type to an identity school, based on the context of urban integration, perception of school as a symbolic element, in its outstanding features and a general understanding of the school principal,  that had clear ideas about the operation and image of the school. This development process generated a building with its own code, like DNA, something individual and unique, identity or personality.

House in Mexilhoeira-Grande, Portugal by Marco Arraiolos

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Joao Morgado

The house, with a required implementation polygon defined in a development plan, is inserted in a batch of reduced dimensions, with southern exposure and views over the river mouth of the estuary of Alvor.

The project inverts the logic of immediate social/private, being the occupation at ground level, of the total area of deployment, made with private and service areas – bedrooms, bathroom and laundry. On this foundation rests a top floor with sloping roof, retreated to the south, resulting in a terrace that develops along the whole facade. On this floor are the social areas – living room, dining room and kitchen, taking advantage of the exposure and the outdoor area in terrace, sheltered by the very construction from the prevailing winds from the north.

São Cirilo Community Centre in Porto, Portugal by Nuno Valentim and Frederico Eça

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

Article source: Nuno Valentim and Frederico Eça

With an area of approximately 2000 squared meters (20m by 100m) and an irregular geometry, the plot had uncharacteristic dimensions and form for the city of Porto. The program was built along with the project – never before had a building in Portugal been specifically designed for the social integration of immigrants. With these uncertainties we looked for clues in our immediate surroundings – we found warehouses, small factories, landfills and illegal constructions…

Cascais Citadel Hotel in Portugal by Gonçalo Byrne Arquitectos

Saturday, June 9th, 2012

Article source: Joao Morgado – Architectural Photography

This luxury hotel, Pousada de Cascais, is set within the walls of the historical fortress, the emblematic 16th century Citadel of Cascais, in the centre of Cascais. It is a place where ancient meets modern, and many of the rooms are dramatically set into the former barracks which makes each space a different experience, while others, more modern, enjoy spectacular views to the sea or over the huge internal patio spaces.
