From Rua do Carvalhinho – on the north side – the topography goes down for 2,4 m till the street that is confined on the south side, EN104. On east side, the neighbour’s land lifts over the land plot for 2 m.

Arquitecto José Carlos Nunes de Oliveira decided to demolish the old farm house, the stone and mud walls and the clay floors, in front of the street: an “urban trouble”!

The architects maintained the squared stone well, an old fruit tree and the localization of pre-existing access, set on the opposite side of the plot, on the North and on the South. The proposal’s geometry reasons were willing – tree and well. They tried a “S”. Followed a “4”, and failed. Emerged an “H” that occupies the plot’s center. The “legs” embrace the tree, the “arms” evolve just a bit.

The “H” configure a social patio in the south, guarded from the east and west light, protected from north-west wind. In the north, the entrance patio.

The center of the volume (of the H) holds all the functions more attended by the inhabitants and the daily activities: entrance, distribution, services and kitchen.

The west wing is reserved to concentration, rest and all their services: toilettes and laundry.

On the east side, two blocks connected at the central volume turned in the opposite directions – North and South – define the rest of the “H” and holding respectively a box and the living room.

The box has the worst exposition situation of the plot.
