The adjoined houses are located in Calçada dos Mestres in Lisbon, where the Aqueduct of Lisbon crosses the neighborhood towards Alcântara valley.


The project consists of refurbishing the existing houses while introducing a new spatial organization according to the present day life.


Onto the morphological identity of the whole we propose a dialogue that was missing with the site, in particular the Aqueduct, the Monsanto Park and the Tagus river.


From the interior compartments, windows are opened till the height of the floors, and adapt to multiple directions according to the inflections of the walls. These openings are like mechanisms that capture frames and offer special moments of the landscape and, at the same time, in reverse extend the house outwards.


The two houses are distinguished by the colors of the entrance doors and the flower boxes.

As casas geminadas localizam-se na Rua Um no Bairro Calçada dos Mestres, em Lisboa, no lugar em que encontram o Aqueduto das Águas Livres em direcção ao vale de Alcântara.


O projecto consiste na alteração e ampliação das casas originais introduzindo-se uma nova organização espacial de acordo com o modo de vida presente.


À identidade morfológica do conjunto inscreve-se um ‘diálogo’ que faltava, em particular, com o Aqueduto, o Parque de Monsanto, a ponte e o rio.


Nas inflexões das paredes rasgam-se janelas à altura dos pisos que procuram essas múltiplas direcções. Estas aberturas funcionam como mecanismos que captam enquadramentos e momentos da paisagem, ao mesmo tempo que estendem as casas ao longe.


As duas casas apenas se distinguem pelas cores das portas de entrada e das floreiras.
