Year 2019-… Location Estoril Area 1160m2
The site is comprised of a 3-storey house and also by a big outdoor area that has several walkways, trees and rough ground. It also has a sloping terrain in which the house’s entry level is placed 5 meters above the street level. Given the degradation state of the complex, the programme includes an increase of the house’s gross floor area as well as an interior renovation. The house is then divided in three apartments, all of which are accessible by independent stairs and a common elevator. On the outdoor area, every apartment has a garden of its own that’s arranged according to the distinctions within the sloping terrain.
The building landscape of Monte Estoril has a variety of houses from architects such as Rafael Duarte de Melo (neo-romantic architecture of the XIX century) and Raul Lino (the ‘Portuguese Houses” model) that serve has a direct influence for the house’s elevations and overall volumetric display.
