About Casa A
Distinct Design in Guimarães Outskirts
Situated on Guimarães’ city fringes, the house stands amid a densely constructed neighborhood.
Balancing Privacy and Aesthetics
Incorporating the lot’s unique dual-altitude nature, we’ve crafted a two-floor design. It prioritizes privacy and complements the context.
Yards: Merging Interior and Exterior
The design uses exogenous and endogenous gaps, depending on their function. Social spaces interact with exogenous yards, enhancing inside-outside dynamics. Fully opened window frames further blur these boundaries.
Private Spaces: Seclusion Meets Design
Private areas employ endogenous gaps. We’ve constructed a solid volume against the retaining wall, punctuated by a single geometric perforation. This entrance introduces light and views but remains controlled.
Monolithic Beauty: From Garage to Pool
A continuous wall connects the underground garage to the pool’s edge. Atop the pool, a negative-rotated volume emerges. This wooden-coated monolith resembles a nest, encompassing the home’s private section.
Fusion of Materials
Concrete and wood converge in a grayscale palette, presenting a fluid chromatic transformation.
