Textual content description offered by the architects. A single-family home wanting on the metropolis of Santo Tirso, from the north financial institution of the River Ave. The shoppers’ requests assumed a sure ambition. Not within the extension of this system, however significantly within the consolation of the inside areas. I keep in mind some particular calls for: an indoor pool; an elevated flooring meant for resting, turned in direction of the sanctuary of Nª. Senhora da Assunção; transparency and light-weight above all.
We have been provided an unlimited promontory of 13,750 m2, roughly within the form of a rectangle. The outdated agricultural property was devoid of main marks. It was virtually empty, aside from a gaggle of outdated and proud oaks within the excessive south and a small destroy within the northwest nook. The granite blocks within the dwelling of the previous landowners have been stabilized. We agreed that they might be cleared of weeds and that the destroy could be left, as it’s, to observe over the brand new entrance to the land.
The proposal consists of a website of 882 m2 (terraced areas included). The home stretches longitudinally to the western panorama, with 33 m in entrance and 28 m deep. The doorway is situated on the north facet. The bottom flooring, with 590 m2, is occupied by social, leisure, and repair areas (together with parking for 4 automobiles). The higher flooring occupies an space of 212 m2, divided into three rooms uncovered to the south and the terrace roof.
A central courtyard was launched to information home areas in direction of mild, breeze, and household exercise. The patio hyperlinks the kitchen, laundry, and parking with the frequent room and corridors, visitor room, fitness center, and pool. Outdoors, vegetative restoration is foreseen, which is able to defend the backyard and the cultivation house, reproducing the attribute species of the territory.
From a constructive viewpoint, the home consists of bolstered concrete slabs and partitions, thermally insulated from the surface with rock wool panels completed in lime-reinforced plaster, and plasterboard partitions and ceilings from the within.
