Gerês house is located on a steep slope in the Caniçada Valley where there was a small house and a stream. The existing building was located in an upper level of the land eventually liable to small landslides, which determined its demolition and the relocation of the new construction. Save this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoSave this picture!Site PlanSave this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoThe new construction relates with the land in a very spontaneous way, taking advantage of its steep slope, of the small stream and of the privileged view over the landscape. The access to the house is made from the upper level, ensuring a full view over the lot and over the building that fits on the ground like a rock. However, it’s inside the house where the visual range allows us to (re)discover the land below, characterized by the irregular stream’s route that results in a small lake at the lower level.Save this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoThe building consists of two elements, a large wood volume that rests on a concrete base, which extends over the land and on the water line. The use of these two materials extends inside the house, which does not seek a conventional program, but rather large, functional and multipurpose spaces, where pleasure and work are mixed.Save this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoThe social space of the house assumes special relevance, materialized in a large central living room which extends to the outside through a large terrace. The kitchen and services are arranged on the same floor of the living room and the most intimate program comes at a second level, relating with the first one in the form of a mezzanine.Save this picture!© Hugo Carvalho AraújoOriginally published on January 22, 2016. Project gallerySee allShow lessHotel Grand Park Royal Vallarta / Lucio MuniainSelected ProjectsKtima House / Camilo Rebelo + Susana MartinsSelected Projects Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Portugal Year:  “COPY” 2015 ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard Photographs:  Hugo Carvalho Araújo Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project ArchDaily Photographs Manufacturers: Lunawood Products translation missing: CopyHouses•Vieira do Minho, Portugal Gerês House / Carvalho AraújoSave this projectSaveGerês House / Carvalho AraújoSave this picture!© Hugo Carvalho Araújo+ 19Curated by Matheus Pereira Sharelast_img read more
