The Site

The lot, where the house is inserted, have a non-regular shape, longitudinal and perpendicular to the street Dr. Egas Moniz, Avanca. The solar orientation (from the street to the interior) is North - South. Concerning the topography, the lot has a slope of 85cm, from the entrance.

Inserted in a consolidated urban area, and to ensure the privacy, the program of the house was turned exclusively to the interior of the lot.

Formal and Functional Constraints

Being inserted in a planning with approved rules, the shape of the building was restring by those rules and the principal volume should have 9x9m and two floors. On south of this volume another volume with 6m length and with only one floor.

We start with a platform merged on the terrain, were the house was inserted.

To avoid the massive effect of the building on the elevations, we designed a set of lines, merging the floors and establishing some rules on the windows and facade finishes. The result was the division of the elevations in three equal parts: S0+S1+S2 (2.1+2.1+2.1m)

This rule allowed to create a recess, trough the rotation of the section S0, to emphasise the entrance on the house.
