BOOST studio as Architects

Context

The existing dwelling was built in 1969 as part of an urban set of townhouses located in the Olivais neighborhood.

 

These houses have a modernist design, with the four structural walls standing out onthe main façades. The design of the façades was composed by standard windows in the private areas and longitudinal high windows next to the ceiling in the living room and circulation areas, in order to allow a better air flow.

 

Both the main and back façade had originally the same design, which made the interior-exterior relation with the garden very difficult.

 

Existing building

The villa has anEast-West sun exposure on the two main façades, with the side façade facing North.

 

This solar orientation is the most suitable in mainland Portugal and the proposal was developed in order to improve all the original features of the house.

 

Concept and program

Our proposal was guided by the need to renew the image of the dwelling for a contemporary experience, as well as strengthening the relationship between interior and exterior with the garden.

 

The concept we put in place had in mind keeping the urban image of the surrounding set of houses, and increasing the size of the back-facing windows - to where the house has, today, an important relation.

 

The house develops on two floors. In the lower one there is a hall, an office, a bathroom, the kitchen and a living and dining room, as well as the stairs leading to the upper floor. On the first floor there are three bedrooms served by a shared bathroom and a master suite.

 

Outside we drew a terrace next to the living room and kitchen, followed by a garden area. It was also built an annex that incorporates the garage, the laundry and a barbecue.

 

Materials

The exterior façade has been fully coated with an ETICS system in order to improve the thermal behavior of the house.

 

In the interior we chose to split the floor finishes on each one of the two floors. In the lower floor we proposed a continuous pavement in a light beige microcementand in the upper floor a timber parquet.

 

The bathrooms were fully finished in sun exposure, both on the floor and on the walls.


The circulation areas were lined with continuous wood panels, which concealed all doors and cabinets.
