House in Nogueiró

Topos Atelier de Arquitectura, Lda. as Architects

Another slope was disembowelled by the mechanical diggers. This house was built in a residual plot as an excuse to preserve a centenary cork-tree. The concept was to fit the house in the slope as if it was born from it. Using gabions we were able to protect the cork-tree remaining routes. By means of planting autochthonous species we created a garden to landscape scale that shall heal the wound.
