LR House (Tondela, Portugal_2015-...)


The configuration, topography and lot’s corner position are structural elements of the project. The house is placed on a stereotomic podium emerging from the ground like a massive rock establishing a horizontal plane redefining the levels difference. The landscape experience is emphasized with a continuous porch along a facade that is rhythmically marked by glazed windows. The four sloping tile roofing encloses the living space of the house and clearly introduces an element of the traditional Portuguese architecture in a contemporaneous language.
