House in Ílhavo
The building site implantation adopts the shape of the land. The two-story volumetry imposes itself on the street but on the back the building follows the length of the ground by losing its scale and subtly fading almost into a single point.

Villa Escarpa, Praia da Luz, Algarve, southern Portugal
Design: Mario Martins
Villa Escarpa Algarve - Portuguese Houses
photo : Fernando Guerra [FG+SG]

Villa Escarpa is located near the village of Praia da Luz, in the district of Lagos, Algarve, in the South of Portugal. A condition of the planning permission was that the new house be constructed in the space occupied by a previous building. This had little architectural or technical merit, but was located in an exceptional position on an escarpment overlooking the Algarve coastline and village of Praia da Luz.

House on a Warehouse, Torres Novas, central Portugal
Design: Miguel Marcelino
New House in Torres Novas
photograph : Joao Morgado

Given the constraints of the existing warehouse, the house shape turns out to be automatically set: a box that rests on the existing structure. The rooms are placed to the east, the toilets to the west, as well as the kitchen, looking to a centennial olive tree. The existing balcony will be maintained and “duplicated” as a shading element.

Valongo House
Thought as a large volume that cuts and breaks the house proposing spaces, scales, experiences and distinctive moments. The entrance sharply assumed by a breach or opening between volumes, gives us, a compression accentuated by a sculpture that accompanies the entrance path.

Montemor House
The deployment of the house defines the west edge of an outdoor walled space that constitutes the resting and leisure area, with exterior sober areas and rigorously designed gardens. The white plaster that covers the building pays tribute to the place and history, as well as the shaled walls print a noble and enduring character to the building.

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.

New Portuguese House
In the concept for this small house in the vicinity of Aldeia de Juso, the tiniest area of flat land and the house’ s, as well as the high density of the new houses yet to be built in the surroundings, forcibly draw us to some sort of “obsession” about the possibilities of dilating space.
