Bairro do Silva, Porto hide text
The project consititues the intervention in a dwelling structure from the early 19th century, settled inside a city block in Porto. The rehabilitation process maintained the general configuration of the complex, seeking to respect its basic morphology. A new conctrete volume defines the entrance patio, also featuring a set of mirrored concrete stairs. The exterior space is strongly characterized by the silhouettes of the existing gable roofs. Mansard roofs punctuate the alleys. A gray palette with different textures is balanced by the colours of the surrounding trees, bushes and flowers. The interior finds clarity and simplicity through a contemporary take on existing structural solutions.
