Private housing in Porto-Boavista

Close to the ocean and Porto’s biggest urban park, the idea for this building came from an intent to merge its volume into the surrounding nature, be this the sea view, the treetops or even the setting sun.

All houses have an independent entrance, and their liveability is divided in two layers, one comprising the social spaces, like the living room or the kitchen, and another one, more private, where the bedrooms can be found.

The building’s materiality is set to reinforce the bond between inhabitant and nature, with wooden shutters and gardens in the balconies.
All this, trying to achieve sustainability and durability, important notions that bring time and place into the project.
