House in Vila Boim by Intergaup:

“The house is situated in an agricultural property with 50ha in Vila Boim, Alentejo. Alentejo’s landscape is mostly composed by soft rolling hills and plains, with cork oaks and olive trees, or the occasional vine. Northern Alentejo’s agriculture is primarily livestock-based mostly as typified by cows, sheep, and pigs. To the south the agriculture is primarily arable. The brief was simple: – A weekend house exactly where during the summer and winter, the household could appreciate the attractiveness of this vast normal landscape.

The main residence has only 1 floor in a “U” shape. The U has its back facing against the slope, creating an inner courtyard. This way we are capable to produce a protected space that makes this initial promenade more individual and cozy.

This courtyard that we call “pátio” shows a subtle drawing, marked by the spans inserted in a regular grid, a central flowerbed and a water tank flat towards the retaining wall that goes all along the entrance path. An outside staircase makes it possible for the connection to the top of the terrain and to the housekeepers’ home. The 3 volumes of the “U” home are constituted by the diverse functions of the house.

In the center, dealing with the west and overlooking an mind-boggling landscape, the social areas, entrance hall, residing area and dining room. In the north side, the support area with kitchen, a tiny dining area and technical places. To south the private components of the home, an region with 4 bedrooms.

The option of these traditional supplies was, in a way, a concern to integrate the property in the rural context exactly where it is located, however the drawing and the purity in the information refers to a more contemporary architectonic method.”
