House in Sequeiros, Portugal by Topos Atelier de Arquitectura

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Article source: Topos Atelier de Arquitectura

To adapt this old farmhouse to a dwelling-house the only necessary intervention was to demolish the partition walls. The house’s social areas were placed in the existing volume. Only a wooden “little box” was set to screen the kitchen area. To host the bedrooms a box unattached to the ground, coated with z – shaped corten steel profiles, was created. In a singular way, the conjunct reminds the traditional rural assemblage of the threshing-floor, granary and farmhouse, as well as a text by Alberto Campo Baeza on boxes: “Caixas, Caixinhas e Caixotes”

Gandra School in Paredes, Portugal by Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes (designed using Autodesk Revit)

Saturday, December 3rd, 2011

Article source: Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes

This is a two-storey school center based on a modular composition organized around a central courtyard. The classrooms are configured as single modules, juxtaposed and clearly perceptible, where variations of the implementation’s orientation and the roof’s slopes determine the formal design of this schools center. This results in a fragmentation of the global volume and roofing design, which cut out a silhouette of relative informality along the complex’s development. The different orientations and roof slopes grant a playful appearance that fits the scholar theme and its environment.

Baixa Bar in Porto, Portugal by José Carlos Cruz Arquitecto

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Article source: José Carlos Cruz

The Project for two office buildings located on Parque das Nações fits into a rectangular lot with three fronts.

A parallelepiped finishes the top of the block while it encloses the plaza outlined by the H shaped building.

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

The house is located in a “typical” peripheric urbanization of Pousos, a parish of the municipality of Leiria. Situated east of the city and at high ground, it works as a sort of panoramic belvedere over Leiria.  So as to assure for more space and complete access to the faraway view, the owners bought the three lots ahead, over the “cliff”.

Pragal Civic Center and Almada business hotel in Portugal by NLA

Tuesday, October 18th, 2011

Article source: NLA

The approach to the problem of merging the urban fabric that fits the “pragal civic center” should have the evolution of the “square” throughout history as a basic idea.

The creation of a homogenous block, with a permeable interior, creating zones of pathways, zones of permanence and areas for contemplation, in which interaction with the palace of Justice and the tensions created thereby contributing to the integration, were the starting points for the design.
