Casa Ricardo Pinto (2012) by Correia/Ragazzi Arquitectos situated in Porto, Portugal. The surroundings to the plot are characterized by medium density consolidated residential aspects despite being so close to Boavista Avenue. The was rebuilt, with three fronts, meant to establish or re-establish a clear volumetric relation with the adjoining dwellings, although it is intended, simultaneously, is a degree of formal autonomy and relation with the terrain.

 

 


 

Originally this house established a relationship with a twin house situated on the plot to the north, which disappeared when it was subjected to a similar intervention. At present, it is intended to re-establish a relation, though of completely different nature – by contrast, and continuity. By contrast in volume, intended to be much lower and establishing a direct reference to the row house with wall moiety on the lot to the south, with only two floors, one being half buried; by continuity through the ground-floor and materials that characterize it.
