House in Taíde
Póvoa de Lanhoso
- Topos Atelier de Arquitectura
- R. de Ralde, 4830 Póvoa de Lanhoso
This house was built in accordance with the pre-existent farm buildings’ implantation and orientation.
The aim was to explore two autonomous construction methods by confronting and intercepting them:
-One uses the existing granite walls from the farmhouse, its windows and doors stonemasonry, to shelter the entrance garden and house work areas.
-The other, which enfolds the living areas and bedrooms, is made of a continuous concrete structure with aluminium frameworks.
In the garden, a flagstone pavement reunites the swimming pool and the original stone tanks.
