Quincho House | Estudio VA Arquitectos

Quincho House is a residence designed by an architectural firm Estudio VA Arquitectos. From the premise of blocking the access from the public street and creating one from the complex’s interior, the architects propose a rectangular volume through the longitudinal section, finding the best visuals and sun orientation. The idea was to design a floating volume wrapped by a skin that adapts to the different spaces through the pass of light, creating a mobility and leisure space that floats over the courtyards and the swimming pool.

cad (primera etapa) | TDA

Cad is a residence designed by the architectural firm TDA. Using the topography as an excuse, the private sphere is located in seminivel. On it, the public room and the kitchen dominate the landscape. In a second moment, the same block will appear, but in front, but only as a cover, constituting the gallery, garages and the grill. A system of routes orders the flows and allows to conquer the house in all its development. An internal courtyard generates the necessary lighting and ventilation.

House Marinha-Grande is a residence designed by Contaminar Arquitectos that exists between the pine forest of Leiria and the small town of Amieira, with some isolated and disordered houses.

The Hidden House | LIJO.RENY.Architects

The Hidden House was designed by the architectural firm Lijo.Reny.Architects. The strategy was to push the building as far as possible away from the highway, on the east, and provide a thriving landscape between them as a buffer. On site, all of the functional blocks were placed, separated by pockets of landscape. This was done to protect them from the assaulting pollution from the highway. Strategically placed windows and openings make sure that there is ample ventilation throughout the year.
