Description
Built in the vast territory of Alentejo, the house emerges from the figure of an extensive water tank attached to a wall, facing south, as if it was a resonance box of the entire landscape. On the other side of the wall the social spaces and two fresco rooms are kept, places of transition between interior and exterior, considered as foundational for the daily life of the house. It is around the small interior patio that different private areas gravitate.


The house is totally lined with lime mortar and insulated with cork from the outside. The shape and geometry of spaces, and the insightful openings, together with the immersion in this materiality, bring a sensorial sense which is difficult to recognize from images.

Descrição (PT)


Construída no vasto território alentejano, a casa surge da figura de um extenso tanque adossado a um muro/parede, voltado a sul, como se de uma caixa de ressonância de toda a paisagem se tratasse. Do outro lado do muro guardam-se espaços sociais da casa e duas salas de fresco, lugares de transição entre interior e exterior, fundacionais para esta vida quotidiana. Em torno de um pequeno pátio interior gravitam os diferentes espaços privados.
Toda a casa é revestida com argamassa de cal e isolada pelo exterior com cortiça. A forma e geometria dos espaços, as aberturas criteriosas e a emersão nessa materialidade emprestam a esta casa um sentido sensorial que dificilmente se reconhece pelas imagens.
