Textual content description supplied by way of the architects. Rehabilitation of a single-family area, situated within the middle of Trafaria – a fishing village at the left financial institution of the Tejo River, in entrance of Lisbon. After we visited where we got here throughout a development in wreck – an outdated fisherman’s area, with about 100 years. We walked in the course of the surrounding streets and we ended up being approached by way of an outdated girl who as soon as lived within the higher flooring of the primary area and who instructed us what it was once love to are living in that position.
It was once unexpected to comprehend that this small development was once as soon as divided in two other properties – one on flooring flooring and the opposite on 1st flooring (an attic with a most peak ceiling of 2m), with none infrastructure.
The development was once very deficient, made with the fabrics that had been simply to be had – sand, dust, stones, shells, small items of pottery, wooden, and many others.
All through the 20th century, silos and different commercial apparatus had been constructed on this house and the everyday properties of fishermen started to get replaced by way of unlawful buildings, condemning the small village to the city degradation. Having this situation in thoughts, it gave the impression glaring that we must counter this development. For us, it was once very important to keep the unique symbol of this development, to stay its identification, adapting it to the wishes of the present house owners – a tender relatives, consisting on a Portuguese guy, a French lady and their child son.
The objective of the purchasers was once to get a multifunctional house – a vacation area and for non permanent condo within the provide and a house the place they wish to are living at some point. The pre-existence consisted on a first-rate development, prior to now described, a storage and an annex.
We would have liked to get an area stuffed with herbal gentle, with a transparent reference to the outdoor house… Convert home windows into doorways, allow us to wreck all prior to now present limitations, serving to us to reach our objective. The doorway house is now in a brand new quantity, between the primary development and the outdated storage.
The bottom flooring of the primary development was once drawn with the purpose of constructing considerable and fluid areas, having as key components the dwelling / eating house and kitchen, separated best by way of the staircase quantity. The outdated storage become an impartial suite – for use by way of visitors.
Within the first flooring we arranged 2 bedrooms with one toilet and one learning house. The roof was once reworked – one roof slope was once maintained with its unique design, and the opposite redesigned, with a slope of 20º, with a view to ensure a greater habitability of the areas, with a number of herbal gentle.
The purchasers sought after to have a spot to garage the bicycles, surf forums, and many others. Additionally they sought after a fish fry and an outside bathe. So, we constructed a brand new quantity nearly like a wooden sculpture, that will incorporate these kinds of components – garage, bathe, fish fry, a bench – and that will lend a hand us to arrange the outdoor area, isolating the automobile parking space from the personal lawn house.
