Miguel Marcelino accomplished the event for a contemporary residence in Chícharo, Torres Novas, Portugal. The briefing was to construct a 3-bed room home on prime of a warehouse constructed within the eighty’s, the place a part of the roof was made with a flat slab and a small balcony, exactly with that concept of later constructing the home. Given the constraints of the prevailing warehouse, the home form seems to be routinely set: a field that rests on the prevailing construction.
The rooms are positioned to the east, the bogs to the west, in addition to the kitchen, trying to a centennial olive tree. The present balcony will probably be maintained and “duplicated” as a shading aspect. The front room is positioned south the place its south/east nook is diagonally minimize in a approach that the balcony might enlarge and supply an outside space shielded from the solar and rain, overlooking the valley.
