The construction area, occupied before with a house, several support structures, a porch and a upland, keeps an old wall, made of stone, that subdivides it in two platforms, being one of them perfectly on level, in the interior of the field, and being the other one ramped into the street. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThis two platforms insinuate also the existence of a withdrawn area from the surroundings and the street, and a nearest area which maintains a highest proximity with the street. The proposal is the result of the maintenance of the referred wall in stone as a regulator element of two distinct realities, proposing also an object that revalues this dichotomy and defends it. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe house is located somewhere upside the wall, allowing a semi-suspension relationship that values a certain duality between the creation of a very regular/rational image into the street and simultaneously a very arbitrary image into the other side of the field. Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGIt allows also a kind of linear functional distribution, solving functional spaces into the backyard, in East side and bringing the main permanence spaces into the street, in Oest. It expands the visual connection between the rooms and living or dinner rooms with the landscape and controls the physical and visual connection of the rest of the spaces with the private exterior areas, in East. Save this picture!It solves the parking areas under the suspended constructed volume at the same time that offers a more privacy connection between the different interior areas with the balcony and mainly with the surroundings. It looks to achieve, mainly, a correct location that simplifies and offers a better distributive connection with the physical particularities of the intervention site plan.Project gallerySee allShow lessAlbi Major Theatre / Dominique Perrault ArchitectureArticlesArchitect Álvaro Siza Lecture at the CCAArticles Share Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/226388/house-in-sobral-nelson-resende Clipboard Architects: Nelson Resende Area Area of this architecture project House In Sobral / Nelson Resende 2011 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/226388/house-in-sobral-nelson-resende Clipboard CopyHouses•Portugal Area: 238 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project Houses Portugal Year: “COPY” ArchDaily House In Sobral / Nelson ResendeSave this projectSaveHouse In Sobral / Nelson Resende “COPY” CopyAbout this officeNelson ResendeOfficeFollowProductsGlassStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPortugalPublished on April 16, 2012Cite: “House In Sobral / Nelson Resende” 16 Apr 2012.
