House in Sequeiros

Topos Atelier de Arquitectura, Lda. as Architects

To adapt this old farmhouse to a dwelling-house the only necessary intervention was to demolish the partition walls. The house’s social areas were placed in the existing volume. Only a wooden “little box” was set to screen the kitchen area. To host the bedrooms a box unattached to the ground, coated with z - shaped corten steel profiles, was created. In a singular way, the conjunct reminds the traditional rural assemblage of the threshing-floor, granary and farmhouse, as well as a text by Alberto Campo Baeza on boxes: “Caixas, Caixinhas e Caixotes”
