2017 (work in progress)
Fundo – Luz de Tavira
Coordinator: Jorge Guimarães
Colaborator: João Carranca
The House in Belmonte is a renovation of an old house in the Algarve countryside.
This renovation was done upon the pre-existing rural constructions and no additional area was allowed to be added. We developed the social area facing both the South and North. No contrast was intended in this intervention and therefore there is a certain continuity between the old construction and the new one. The old typical facade was preserved and a new front porch in brick grit was created in order to bring some shade to this side of the residence.
