House in Alto da Portela

Valley House
2009 -2017 (concluded)

Coordinator: Jorge Guimarães
Colaborador: João Carranca
Quimera Creations Studio

The “Valley House” is a project that consists on separated works in a family house. Due to different upgrades needed through time this intervention is mainly focused on the interior design, even though exterior changes had to be implemented. The outside intervention followed the choice of the existing materials criteria and the interior works reflect a new formal approach according to each specific need of the owners. This project was developed in straight contact with the decoration team and it reflects a special attention to architectural detail.
