House in Oeiras by Pedro Domingos Arquitectos located in Oeiras, Portugal | The Hardt
House in Oeiras by Pedro Domingos Arquitectos located in Oeiras, Portugal. The house is anchored to an interior patio with 38 x 38 x 19 ft (11.5m x11.5m x 5.75m) The patio acts as the center of the house, an outdoor room. A space built in reference to the atmosphere of the traditional Mediterranean patio, defining a place of intimacy, light, and shadow. The house is organized around the patio, through a path from the common areas, in the south/east, to the most private rooms in the north.
The house is lived in a continuous space without interior doors, with different heights and atmospheres in order to define its use. The central patio is the only autonomous space where the physical boundary is precise and defined. The construction is simple and austere, emphasizing the pure qualities of light, shadow, and space, looking for a constructive and economic optimization: concrete structure; interior and exterior walls with pigmented plaster; inside floors finished with pigmented concrete; ceilings with exposed natural concrete; frames with fixed glass and metal doors.
