Residential Architecture: House F+M by João Rapagão Arquitecto: “..Inserted in a narrow but extensive urban lot, surround by heritage and culturally important trees, the project assumed as an option a gathering that denies the everyday city..Formally, the volume is dense and thick. It looks slightly to the street at southeast and unabashedly to the courtyard in the northwest..This courtyard is dominated by the pool, between the two rooms – the north and south, respectively, the seasonal and annual. The general organization of space shows a functionality and reasonably dictated by the centrality of vertical access that constrain the locations, relationships and approaches to space, participating, encouraging and coordinating the three floors..” Sharp, clean and simple facade, privacy, interior courtyard, indoor/outdoor living..
