DJ House Carcavelos – 6 Jul 2012
A central patio divides the house into two parts and organizes the interior spaces: on the west side, an open horizontal space to the garden receives the dining room and the kitchen; on the east side, a vertical space, located at a lower level in relation to the public route to ensure domestic privacy, receives the living room.

Francisco de Arruda School
This building is a project within the “School Modernization Program” sponsored by the Parque Escolar, for a school originally designed by architect José António Pedroso in 1956. The three bodies that constitute the school are situated on the hillside in the continuity of the Faculty of Agronomy fields, overlooking the district of Alcântara. The original building, spread across three platforms pragmatically modelled on the hill, is organized around a central patio and has three bodies each with its own functions – teaching, administration, and covered playground; gym and cafeteria; workshops – linked through covered outdoor galleries. These bodies, with very different shapes, were taken by us as if they had been built over time, making a little city. Our project quietly continues this process.

Fonte da Luz Housing
On a street corner on the Foz of the Douro in Oporto, where once have existed a square and a fountain, the new roads, were built higher “sinking” the pre-existing buildings. Some of the buildings, unfortunately, were replaced, others with some difficulties resisted. In this batch of street corner, only the robustness of the exterior masonry of granite weathered over the years, which like a skeleton waiting patiently for a new “body.”
