The house is located in Espinho, a small parish just a few kilometers from the center of the city of Braga.
It is a isolated house, located on a sloping terrain and develops on 2 floors.
According to the conditions of the land, we decided to install the house on the middle level of the land, in order to integrate it better into the landscape.
The concept is based on the desire to make the house integrate into the landscape through its horizontal lines and its garden cover, as if the mountain entered the house.
项目所用的材料平滑地连接在一起，用裸露的混凝土和自然的木板覆盖墙壁和天花板，而地板则采用了灰色的 ataí ja天然石料，使建筑具有色彩的一致性。
The materiality of the house is dominated by the use of materials that are smoothly interconnected between them. We use exposed concrete with natural wood formwork on the walls and ceilings and gray ataíja natural stone for the floors, giving the building a chromatic coherence.
In order to accentuate the light dark contrast between the positive of the solid elements and the negative corresponding to the opening of the openings, the black aluminum frame was chosen.
On the facades where the solar incidence is strongest, was designed a protection coverusing the concrete material.
The distribution of the program takes into account the best solar orientation and panoramic views over the fields and over the Sameiro Sanctuary. The functional distribution provides for maximum use of solar energy, in order to obtain greater energy savings.
