The clients’ wish was to have a three hundred square meter ground level house built, focused on common and leisure areas, initially for weekends and celebrations.

The layout is a result of organizing the bulding site’s occupation, as well as the positioning of the areas in the program, with two main volumes.

Private spaces were organized in the linear volume, while the wider-shaped one received all the common areas. Their positioning allows for the creation of a reserved backyard for leisure activities.

The façades’ composition reveal the level of privacy of each space: the concrete’s opacity corresponds to the more private areas; the partial transparency of the slatted timber panels reveals the common spaces, and the open leisure areas have void itself as its defining element.

Brief
A one-story weekend house for a family of four and potential guests, with approximately 300 square meters, prioritizing common and leisure spaces.

Key Challenges
The building site’s reduced area and shape were the main challenges to be overcome, once the brief required a one-story occupation, while preserving the largest possible green area.

Solutions
The optimized layout of the program into two volumes – one to house the common areas, and a more private one – allowed for the creation of a leisure backyard, which physically and visually integrate all spaces.
