Afife House / Alfredo Resende Arquitectos

first_img Year:  Photographs:  Luis Ferreira AlvesText description provided by the architects. North of Viana do Castelo, between mountains and sea, Afife has views of wonderful landscapes that interlock perfectly. When the client showed me he had bought the land, it was hard to not be surprised by the fantastic panoramic view of the surrounding landscape and the sea. Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesSituated on top of the mountain and protected from north winds, it was clear that the implantation of the house was essential, since this place was the reason for its construction. Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesIn order to better relate with the land, the house sits on a platform created by the existing stone walls that define the topography of the site. Some of the existing stone walls were in ruins and had to be rebuilt.

From an existing reclaimed floor, parallel to the house, a pool relates to the garden and the wall.Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira AlvesProject gallerySee allShow lessTaiwan Tower Proposal / BNKR ArquitecturaArticlesPassenger Terminal Building Proposal / IN&EDIT ArchitectureArticles Share Projects Portugal Afife House / Alfredo Resende Arquitectos Afife House / Alfredo Resende ArquitectosSave this projectSaveAfife House / Alfredo Resende Arquitectos 2007 CopyHouses•Portugal ArchDaily Save this picture!© Luis Ferreira Alves+ 18 Share “COPY” Photographs ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/169454/afife-house-alfredo-resende-arquitectos Clipboard Architects: Alfredo Resende Arquitectos Area Area of this architecture project CopyAbout this officeAlfredo Resende ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductStone#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPortugalPublished on September 16, 2011Cite: “Afife House / Alfredo Resende Arquitectos” 16 Sep 2011.
