House in Rato, Portugal by CHP Arquitectos

Friday, November 6th, 2015

Article source: CHP Arquitectos

The design consists of the refurbishment and expansion of an existing building in one of Lisbon’s historic neighbourhoods. The vernacular characteristics of the front facade were refurbished and clarified. Inside the design aims to create and free space on each floor, enhancing its size and scale, and creating a dialogue between the front and back facades, enabling light to entre through both directions. All technical aspects inherent to a contemporary family house are resolved through a block at the centre of each floor, liberating the side walls, unveiling both facades.

Casas Caiadas in Arraiolos, Portugal by Pereira Miguel Arquitectos

Tuesday, September 15th, 2015

Article source: Pereira Miguel Arquitectos

A Lisbon couple sets off into a real estate adventure and purchases, with an impulse, a small plot with four ruins in the middle of Alentejo called Moinho do Barroco (Barroco’s Water Mill). The location is remote, without paved road access and only accessible in summer, as the river fills and overflows in winter.

School Sobrosa in Paredes, Portugal by CNLL

Wednesday, September 9th, 2015

Article source: CNLL

This school was designed as a playful combination of modules that can be easily adapted to the variations of the terrain and the topography of the place. It develops the concept established in the modular schools project (CEM – Centros Escolares Modulares) and revisits the original objective where the movement, variation and formal complexity of the exterior contrast with the lin­earity of the interior planes that structure the function­al areas.

Baltar School in Paredes, Portugal by CNLL

Tuesday, September 8th, 2015

Article source: CNLL

Located in the middle of a school and sports complex, this building differs from the other schools as it offers a wider programme, catering for primary and middle school children. This exposed concrete building with scattered windows is characterised by a simultaneous­ly sober and contemporary language. It has clear and objective lines, free from superfluous elements, where the careful relationship between solid and empty spac­es creates a pure composition and a symbiotic harmo­ny between the parts and the whole.

Tabuaço Municipal Swimming Pool in Portugal by Topos Atelier de Arquitectura, Lda

Thursday, September 3rd, 2015

Article source: Topos Atelier de Arquitectura, Lda

The building is located in an area of difficult geological, topographical and accessibility conditions. The choice of this location, near the city park, the outdoor swimming pools, the sports hall and schools, aims to create a center of educational activities capable of producing a momentum for the consolidation and upgrading of the urban environment of this part of the city. For the viability of the land, it was necessary to design a new route that by continuing the existing fabric, will fix part of the urban expansion around the existing core.
