House in Estoi
Coordination: Jorge Guimarães
Colaborators: Luísa Lopes
The “House in Estoi” is a rehabilitation of an old traditional house.
The interiors were adapted in such a way to benefit the best out of the existing volumes and creating a new dynamic for its owners. The garden area was as crucial as the opened entrance towards the internal courtyard to obtain different environments and different patterns of light
The various outside areas are adapted to many platform levels each separated from steps and both in terracotta. On the internal patio 2 separated stairs reach 2 distinct terraces and from one of those entering the upper bedroom without entering the main house. The barbecue area is hidden behind the living room, and the pergola “lowers” the presence of the 5m tall white wall of the neighbor.
