Garden in Comporta, Portugal by Topiaris Arquitectura

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Article source: Topiaris Arquitectura

The garden is located on the southwest coast of Portugal, in Herdade da Comporta, Alentejo, which is an outstanding and diverse landscape mosaic with high ecological and cultural value. It is worth mentioning the dune system with psammophilous pioneer vegetation, as well as maritime and umbrella pine woods. This mosaic is complemented by agricultural areas in the lower alluvial soils with large ranges of rice fields. The plot area is 3000m2, and the morphology of the land is very smooth and low sloped.

Dental Clinic in Oporto, Portugal by Paulo Merlini

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

Article source: Paulo Merlini

The uncommon form, narrowness, vertical amplitude of the space and the two big glass façades placed on the main and back façade defined mainly the organization of the spaces. The reception and waiting room it’s characterized by a big white box that floats in the air playing with the vertical amplitude of the space. The interior of the box mimetizes the idea of being under a roof, giving the user a familiar sensation of comfort, and helping I’m to calm down before the treatment.  From the “roof” a series of lamps float in the air, filling the space with light.

Cabeço do Resto House in Madeira, Portugal by MSB Arquitectos

Wednesday, February 27th, 2013

Article source: MSB Arquitectos

The ground seems inappropriate for the building. With a very steep slope, which extends from south to north, the first impact is the extreme difficulty for the implementation of a house. the project provides an initial response to this setback, refusing to shape the land with retaining walls, and taking advantage of the slope to \”drop\” the program of the house and dividing the volume in two separate platforms, connected with a vertical element that binds these two moments.

Article source: 2L Atelier Arquitectos

With the purpose in re-qualifying an old building belonging to a derelict industrial area, this project proposes a new concept for a banking branch by presenting an innovative attendance desk design that leads to a new and fresh appearance, language and workplace blueprint, without losing the institution’s identity. This new image needs to be cohesive, simple in its form, identifiable from other institution’s branches, communicative and friendly.

G.C. House in Ovar, Portugal by Atelier d’Architecture | Lopes da Costa

Friday, February 22nd, 2013

Article source: Atelier d’Architecture | Lopes da Costa

The arrival at the house is characterised by two exposed concrete walls which surround the building, both hiding and sheltering it. Access is established via a ramp covered by a canopy which extends from the house until the gate, set against an iron pillar. The house is essentially closed to the north and east, opening totally to the south and west in the direction of the sun, benefiting from a privileged relationship with the garden, patios and swimming pool.

Esmeriz House in Vila Nova, Portugal by Projecto Cosimo

Thursday, February 14th, 2013

Article source: Projecto Cosimo

The concept of a house is usually related to the function of shelter/home but it also includes a socio/cultural exercise of a specific community. This house is definitely that place where we act as urban individuals protected from time. It is a polyvalent space that articulates an administrative area with another one that promotes culture and civilization as if through a path where the main program/scheme is spread (secretary, offices, WC, auditorium), just like a beast with thousand feet snug to the slope.

Lordelo Pharmacy in Vila Real, Portugal by JOSÉ CARLOS CRUZ – ARQUITECTO

Sunday, February 3rd, 2013

Article source: JOSÉ CARLOS CRUZ – ARQUITECTO

The Pharmacy is located in Vila Real, in the centre north of Portugal and is part of a peripheral zone of the city where the environment does not have a consolidated and uniform image. In the absence of external references, it was chosen to create a building with an abstract and neutral character, reinforced by the absence of openings. With oval shape footprint, the two floors are fully aluminum coated corrugated and perforated. The only direct opening to the outside is the main entrance that gives access to the sales area. By changing the interior light and the symbol of pharmacy, the building gains dynamic, allowing the image variation from day to night. The store not only sells medicines but also has its own laboratory for compounding pharmacy.
