Costa House in Almada, Portugal by Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

Thursday, January 19th, 2017

Article source: Joao Tiago Aguiar Arquitectos

The house where our intervention took place consists of a villa located in the seaside resort city of Costa da Caparica. This is a specific and surgical intervention in a highly deteriorated villa from the seventies. Although the refurbishment seemed urgent the financial contention demanded that the substantial architectonic intervention was limited to the 1st floor, attic and terrace over the garage, the rest of the house being renovated in a simpler and more convenient way.

Situated in a dense pine forest, the hexagonal plot had no references to the choice of location for the construction. It was conditioned by ‘occupation zone’ defined by the Master Plan – a circle of 12.50 m radius centered at hexagon that defines the perimeter of the plot.

Usually a scenography in theater appears as a consequence of a certain text and a certain sequence of actions. Could we conceive it in the opposite direction? Would it be possible to use space as a way of anticipate and contribute the whole action as an outline condition? The scenography, or as we would argue, the Architecture itself, might influence the play and favor for certain actions instead of some others in an informal and none imposed way. Space, text and action could come together in a non hierarchical order and in a close relation and intimacy. Rossi says that “theater has to do with the happening: his beginning, development and conclusion. Without happening there’s no Theater and there’s no Architecture”.

Almada Municipal Theatre in Almada, Portugal

Being surrounded by some careless buildings, resulting from the slightly casuistic “urban explosion” that like a curse reached all the country’s towns and cities as of the 1960’s, an anonymous place waits for some occurrence that might articulate the senses, instituting a point of departure towards an apprehensible and nameable organisation.
