The (re)designing of this part of the city had its starting point at the recognition of the significant permanence of the surrounding urban structure.

These fragments can never be reduced to an immediate unit, but must coexist as parallel realities. Save this picture!© João FerrandWe sought to make sure that exterior facades would not simply mimic the desired unit, but would reproduce an artistic image resulting from the articulation and integration of the nearest enclosure (Lapa) and the furthest. Save this picture!© João FerrandThe proposal is establishead on the overflow of the limits of the lot, adapting the building to the street and affirming the recognition of the significant points of urban reality. Save this picture!© João FerrandThe different heights of the volumetry respond to the context and variation of scale, producing a significant building / space that mediates between two ways of creating a city. Save this picture!© João FerrandFor economic reasons, we find it consistent to use a typology based on the left right outline. Furthermore, the morfhological characteristics of the lot, the tittle depht it allows and the little depth desired for the building impede any other sort of typology. Therefore we have introduced typological rationality in the distribution of the housing units that is only broken at trning points on the floor plan. The entrances are directly related to the proposed housing typology and, at the same time, in accordance with the programmatic and functional organisation. The entrances are located around the central space, fundamental in the articulation of the different scales. Access to the car park is from the patio and adjacent streets (on corners and in the middle of the building). The distribution of the housing units follows an outline on both sides of a hall. It identifies whit the adjoining fabric and is the result of an approximation to the typology based on the composition elements of the facade. Given the diferences in elevation of the streets, facing the bedrooms towards the patio and the wet areas towards calle Salgueiros is almost compulsory. In this way, window size is reduced, providing more privacy.
