From the architect. The project is a reinterpretation of the classic Greek and Roman model of the house with two courtyards, one for entrance and the other central, collecting the rain waters, letting light and ventilation reach the open gound floor, of living and kitchen.

The house is composed in two levels and built at the center of a triangular site.

On the first floor the rooms and bathroom. The kitchen inside a giant light chimney volume recalls the tall stone chimneys of the popular Azorean architecture, joined by a traditional exterior oven.

Between the garage and the kitchen a small volume with wood horizontal planks serves as cloth drier using natural ventilation and recalls the typical tobacco driyers from popular architecture built on the south coast of the island.

The exterior to east and south is cast with the local lava stone, recalling the usual stone walls dividing the lands and protecting the houses all over the island landscape. On top a play with two moving cryptomeria wood volumes around the impluvium courtyard envelops the rooms and links also with the traditional added wood volumes seen all over the landscape. This wood is originary from japan and covers the island. These two volumes frame the view towards the north shore and ocean in the main room, and towards the seven cities volcano and mountains on the second room, at south.

The main impluvium courtyard is painted with old yellow ocre color and the bathroom courtyard is painted with a soft pink, both used on the typical noble houses of the island.

Standfestes Azorenhaus: Das Wetter auf den Azoren kann durchaus heftig sein. Reduzierter kann man nicht bauen http://bit.ly/d1ECzk

The volumes seem a bit too ominous for this typology, but there does seem to be a some potential.

Even though if you like it or not, it´s not a render, the work was completed in 2006.

for me I do not appreciate the materialization of their work, but I think it is a young architect with great potencial and with good ideas.

I like a few photo angles outside and the Porsches in the garage… other than that… very cold.

matteo · September 12, 2010

A closed mind renders an open eye worthless.
