House in Sequeiros Topos Atelier de Arquitectura

This modern residence was adapted from an old farmhouse located in Amares, Portugal. Topos Atelier de Arquitectura kept the intervention sparse to preserve the structure's rustic character. It is a 2008 project. House in Sequeiros Topos Atelier de Arquitectura: "To adapt this old farmhouse to a dwelling-house the only necessary intervention was to demolish the partition walls. The house’s social areas were placed in the existing volume. Only a wooden “little box” was set to screen the kitchen area. To host the bedrooms a box unattached to the ground, coated with z – shaped corten steel profiles, was created. In a singular way, the conjunct reminds the traditional rural assemblage of the threshing-floor, granary and farmhouse, as well as a text by Alberto Campo Baeza on boxes: “Caixas, Caixinhas e Caixotes” floor plan elevations/ section Photos by: Xavier Antunes
