Located in Comporta, Grândola, Portugal, this concrete property was designed by RRJ Arquitectos.
The structure’s austere exterior provides way to an interior that has an easy elegance and a warmth that makes the spaces really relaxed.
Residence in Comporta by RRJ Arquitectos:
“The house is on a massive estate positioned in Comporta, Portugal. The site is entirely clear, defined only by sandy soil, with spontaneous undergrowth vegetation and heavily punctuated by the vertical lines of a lot of pines.
Against this backdrop, the principal aim of architect Rui Pinto Gonçalves, from RRJ Arhitects, was to design a piece that would fit properly into the website. To register the landscape in a gesture, without having highlighting it. Merging the architectural object with the profile of the existing nature.
Following these premises, the conceptual method resulted in the composition of 2 volumes, interconnected by a smaller sized volume. 2 cast volumes, leaving the exterior circulate within and that dilute every other.
The project is set on the ground, as if it was portion of it, horizontal and mimetic, by its scale, components and colours, in components of geometrical rigor, opening windows to the setting and concurrently disseminating its personal perspectives on its reflections.
Contemporary language marks the entirety of the developing, developed with clean lines and minimalist plays of planes and components.
The principal volumes are 2 exposed concrete parallelepipeds, fundamentally bounded by a minimal gray frame. The volume that backlinks them is clad in cement and wood fiber panels, with a fairly neutral expression.
A main concern in the style of the undertaking was sun protection, an intention to make the property as permeable as feasible, to merge the interior and exterior spaces, which led to huge glazed planes always protected from sunlight. So all glass planes are recessed and have shade screens.
The interiors tend to adhere to the same line of consistency, highlighting a pure, stripped setting in which transparencies and noble supplies predominate.
Whites planes are valued, covering almost all the interiors, on a normal wood pavement.
Following the philosophy of RRJ Architects, the constructing responds to the characteristics of the web site, the starting stage for the creation of exclusive patterns.”Floor Strategy
