House in Sátão (2013) by Jorge Mealha located in Sátão, Portugal. The project of the house of the Sátão aimed the recovering and expanding of an existing house where at the time of its beginning the mother of the client still lived. It was a beautiful stone-built house built by his father who carefully selected the material to be assembled. The house had the peculiarity of owning water well in its interior and the client made a point concerning its maintaining. The vicissitudes of a troubled building process as had as a main consequence the collapse of the original house in stone. The stubbornness of the architect, based on the conviction that these stones belonged to that specific site, leads to a new project reusing all the stones of the original house and maintaining the position of its main original body. Just like the water well inside. The project maintained the original premise of replicating a preexisting logic by organizing the program around an outside entrance patio. The project maintains the original premise of replicating preexisting logic by organizing the program around an outside entrance patio. On the ground floor, a concrete zigzag strap circumvents the new stone body, groups the set of social spaces of the house that form a set the compartments around the courtyard. In the upper floor, the set of intimate spaces follows the same logic. The various spaces are articulated on both floors through a long corridor.

House in Paço de Arcos by Jorge Mealha located in Lisbon, Portugal. Located on an impressively sloping site in Paço de Arcos, a neighborhood of Lisbon facing the sea, this house proposes an arrangement of several solids trying to attenuate the overall mass due to a huge functional program requested by the client. A set of restrictive regulations, defined in the city council urbanistic project, from distances to borders, access and the total amount of construction area and volume were also a condition to be addressed and surpassed. 

 

The resultant form proposes a dialogue between a range of different solids and voids, using light to draw or reflect on the surfaces, proposing a changeable reading of space and volumes during the day. The metal screening/shading devices, create large smooth textured surfaces on the facade of the house emphasizing forms and controlling the relationships between indoor and outdoor or between external and internal spaces. The house is all white and the roofs are flat. Some circulations, as the staircase and main corridor, are in white painted metal slightly detached from the walls, leaving opportunity for light to pass in between.

House in Meco by Jorge Mealha situated in Carcavelos, Portugal. Located on a woody site at Meco beach nearby Sesimbra in the outskirts of Lisbon, this house aims to create a close relationship with its surrounding space, a beautiful natural landscape. A set of restrictive regulations defined in the city council masterplan project had to be incorporated into the project.  Property setbacks, site access, and the total amount of construction area and volume were just a few of the regulations that had to be considered. The resultant form proposes an almost accidental arrangement of different and overlapped solids, dealing with mass, voids, and balance. Windows are opened in an apparent freeway trying to catch the most interesting spots in the surrounding landscape. This house plays with materiality using a range of different finishes to organize form and identify spaces.  Main circulations, staircases and the bridge between the upper rooms, are defined by painted white metal and glass.
