House in Estarreja
Characterization of the land / area
The site plan, is marked by its irregular shape and form.
He as a strong relief with about 8m difference from entrance.
Taking this in account and the rules for building in that area, we begin the project occupying the area as possible to build up to the limits.
The result of the deployment was a trapezoidal-shaped “L” with major openings to the west. The form “L”, was intended to have the entrance area in a more central of the building.
Formal and functional constraints
The principle of construction was to establish two-level platforms. One, the social area and the other on the ground floor with the more private area.
The principle was to take all the program turned to the best views in west.
