Solution:

Respecting the site in its entirety, the project is total involvement with the natural surroundings. Was privileged contemplation of the landscape, adapting the volumetry of the house to the natural topography. The extremely careful two volumes have been developed in “L” shape.

The arrangement shown, maximizes the southern sun exposure, differing in subtle, non-blocking visual, public and private areas. On the whole, the project was undertaken without sacrificing the natural elements and panoramic tiny cuts between site characteristics and human intervention.

Solução:

Respeitando o local na íntegra, o projecto assume envolvência total com os elementos naturais circundantes. Foi privilegiada a contemplação da paisagem, adequando a volumetria da casa à topografia natural. De forma extremamente cuidadosa, foram desenvolvidos dois volumes que se relacionam em “L”. A disposição apresentada, maximiza a exposição solar a Sul, diferenciando de forma subtil e sem bloqueios visuais, as áreas pública e privada. Na sua globalidade, o projecto foi empreendido sem sacrifício dos elementos naturais e com diminutos cortes panorâmicos entre as características do local e a intervenção humana.
