Patio Huguenot Porto Stable Building
A shelter for horses and riders… in the core of an urban soil.
For horses: five cells, a storage space and a covered outdoor space for horse cleaning, all on the ground floor.
For riders: bathing, toilet, living room with balcony and an exhibition space for prizes, all on the upper floor.
Man and Horse: two different scales to manage in a single volume. The intervention follows the ancient relationship between this two different bodies, shapes and forms.
The building only have three materials: concrete walls, defined as the “shell” that supports the body in solid wood of the ground floor (horse) which receives, smooth and delicate, the upper floor (man) made in a wooden skeleton coated in corrugated sheet metal.
The project intends to create some new perspectives for the owners and their relationship with the surrounded area, for the site and the program asks for new interventions and for an art of building apart from that which is today much too related to formal and photographic consumption.
