Colégio dos Plátanos in Sintra, Portugal by murmuro

Friday, June 16th, 2017

Article source: murmuro

Colégio dos Plátanos is a school in Sintra which educates children from the age of 3 to 14; the project consists of the expansion and reorganization of the school. Having acquired a set of low quality buildings east of the existing school, the client intended to demolish them and expand the school complex eastwards, adding a series of new classrooms, complementary spaces and sport facilities. During the design phase the client changed course and decided to maintain the east buildings and commissioned a new construction of smaller scale, connecting the east and west buildings that had to be built in two phases, allowing for a reduced investment since our country was facing an economic crisis and on the verge of the troika intervention (IMF, EC, ECB). This decision also required the development of an intermediate structural solution and controlled demolitions in order not to interrupt the daily school operation; only with the conclusion of the second phase will the entire complex be fully articulated.

Casa em Sintra in Sintra, Portugal by Regino Cruz Arquitectos

Tuesday, August 2nd, 2011

Article source: Regino Cruz Arquitectos

We saw this piece of land, with almost one acre, where we conceived our villa, as a spiritual retreat where the secular cork trees were abundant. Any construction can be built in one or two years, but the privilege of contemplating cork trees like those is the product of at least five generations, more than 150 years in time. So, it’s fair to say that in this case, architecture occupied the remaining space.

House in Colares, Sintra, Portugal by Frederico Valsassina

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Article source: Frederico Valsassina

It’s all about a project for a summer home, as a result of an order that from the beginning had precise conditions in terms of program: a big living room, connected to an office area; a service area with space for light meals attached to the kitchen; a private area with two small bedrooms and a suite with an incorporated sauna; a garage with an incorporated workshop space; a swimming pool with a big solarium; well illuminated interior spaces opened over the landscape; Formal soberness and a contained budget were also demanded.
