Touguinha House

Location: Touguinha, Vila do Conde, Portugal

Touguinho House Vila do Conde

The small Touguinha House, with an accentuated slope on the topography, is located in the main street of Touguinha, a small village in the north of Portugal. On site, there are houses on both sides of the plot terrain, an old stone wall at the back and, at the front, there are some crop fields with a small grove in the middle.

The implantation of the house meets the street lineup of the surrounding houses and allows the lateral access on the north side of the property for the footpath and the driveway. In the backyard, Raulino Silva Architect decided to demolish the existing sheds and to recover the old stone wall, a typical feature of the region.

In the lower floor, which occupies about half of the implantation, is the garage, the technical area, the laundry room and the main entrance with the stairs to the upper floor, which is lit by the south facing patio.

Upstairs, there´s a central aisle that separates the social area of the house and the bedrooms area, accentuated with small balconies on each end.

Facing the street there are three bedrooms with a shared balcony, one of which is a suite with a private bathroom illuminated by a skylight. To the posterior zone, more sheltered and connected to the backyard, we have the kitchen and the living room, spaces which are extended to the outdoors through the deck area.
