Casal Saloio – Ruralidade Museum / Miguel Marcelino
Textual content description offered by the architects. The Casal Saloio de Outeiro de Polima is likely one of the few examples that doc the primary occupations of this territory. It’s an outdated and humble rural home that has undergone successive modifications and expansions over time till it’s now remodeled right into a museum area.
In its genesis it was only a easy compartment, then it gained an annex room, then a facet wing, a stone oven, the corral, and the second flooring, and once more extra different annexes. At one level two buttresses have been added to comprise structural issues. The constructive logic has all the time been that of informality and the mere provide of wants.
With so many layers of transformations, it was determined to consolidate the outdated rural home in its final recognizable configuration, with the ability to learn its evolution by the damaged and uneven geometry. The brand new enlargement consists of two new volumes intersecting in an L, forming a courtyard with the prevailing set and adopting an analogous form and scale, persevering with, now within the XXI century, the logic of successive expansions and intersections that characterize it.
