This project is characterized mainly by its peculiar volumetric development. It’s articulated in step horizontal boards, following this way the terrain morphology. Composed by four housing blocks, the whole set is articulated by two vertical access volumes, without windows, ripped only on the contact with the floor and on the rooftop for zenithal lighting.

These two volumes, on a rearmost position from the rest of the overall construction, contribute in a decisive way to break that visual continuity, disallowing it to assume big proportions which would compromise its integration in the environment.

As the building takes a central position on the intervention area, it results that all the surrounding spaces deserved a special attention, mainly destined to be private terraces. Following the natural local topography of the terrain, the proposal generates two entrances, east and west, one in each limit of the project area. The connection between those two points is made by a circulation axe of stairs and ramps.

This proposal “Terraços de Cascais” has a very specific metric defined by its fenestration elements. This metric is also applied in the interior by many other elements. This strictness regarding to the design of all parts of the building, from furniture to the doors and baseboards, enforces the idea of the project as a unit.
