Apartment Amoreiras in Lisbon, Portugal by João Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

Friday, July 6th, 2018

Article source: João Tiago Aguiar, arquitectos

The apartment is located on the 1st floor of a housing building with exclusive access to a big patio which corresponds to the roof of the garage placed on the ground-floor. We have come across an apartment very fragmented by thick structural walls. However, given the possibility of creating a close relation between the inside and the outside, it was chosen to place the living areas on the rear elevation, with access to the patio. For that effect, all the walls of the various rooms that made up the inner zone of the apartment were demolished and all those compartments were transformed in one single and large living-room with the kitchen at the end. The kitchen was treated as a loose volume, hidden by two folding doors which allow a more fluid circulation around that volume which in turn hides the subsequent laundry area.



Patio House in Grândola, Portugal by PROMONTORIO

The house is located on a large field of mature cork oaks and stone pines in Grandola, Alentejo, near the Atlantic coast. Typologically, it is inspired on the Portuguese rural settlements known as “montes” which were usually located in dominant places in the landscape and formed by clusters of volumes informally positioned around a courtyard.  In like manner, the concept for this house spring from the idea of a central patio, which is the main source of light and shade.  Around and against this cut-off space, adjoining volumes aggregate the more private or servicing functions of the house —bedrooms, toilets, kitchen, pantry and storage, whereas the interstitial spaces between the volumes generate the social areas, namely, the living- and dining- rooms and the study.

Redondo Building in Coimbra, Portugal by João Branco e Paula del Rio, Arquitectos

Friday, June 22nd, 2018

Article source: João Branco e Paula del Rio, Arquitectos

The “Redondo” is the last of a row of four buildings built at the beginning of the 20th century in the center of Coimbra. Its cylindrical shape responds to the oblique cross between two streets, and gives the building a certain singularity and its name. The original organization in two independent houses: an apartment on the ground floor and a house with two floors and garret on the upper level, was maintained.

House Brotero in Lisboa, Portugal by phdd arquitectos

Friday, June 15th, 2018

Article source: phdd arquitectos

In a neighbourhood of small buildings this project was always developed with the intention of a careful integration of the house in the local context.

For the street the house is revealed like a small traditional volume, with roof tiles and typical sized windows with local stone, setting the relationship with the scale of the neighbourhood.

This volume is attached to another one exposed as a big wall, without any openings, where the main social areas of the house open to the garden in the back.
