项目的设计目标是对位于Rua Miguel Bombarda街道上的一栋住宅建筑进行改造和扩建。这里是波尔图最具标志性的道路,沿街设有数座画廊。原有建筑已然显现出破败的迹象,不再适合使用。深长的基地让设计师可以建造一座花园以及另一栋独立楼房。

The aim of the project was to rebuild and expand a residential building on one of the most emblematic streets in Porto, Rua Miguel Bombarda, where several art galleries are located. The existing building, already showing some signs of degradation, was of little relevance. The depth of the lot allowed the design of a garden and also of another autonomous building.

The project made very little use of the existing structure, except for the main facade wall and the respective spans, the metrics of which were preserved. The beautiful granite balcony has also been maintained and, together with the solid brick that was placed on the ground floor, represent the main features of the facade.

A wide side corridor gives access to the building’s entrance, the stairway and the lift and it still allows foreseeing the passage to the garden inside the block, uneven in relation to the street. The vertical accesses are illuminated through a skylight.

Inside the lot, overlooking the neighbours’ gardens, the back facade was designed with a solid brick cladding at its base. The other autonomous construction was also designed with solid brick cladding placed horizontally and vertically.

Eight of the ten houses in the building are of one bedroom type. On the first and last floors, duplex houses of two bedroom type were designed to solve the base and the top of the building. Inside each home, concrete is the predominant material as well as in all common areas.
