Studio: Start Studio
Designer / Architect: Alba Duarte / Emanuel Grave
Personal / Commissioned: Commissioned Project
Location: Silves Portugal
This is a project under development, designed to respond to a building located on a plot with a very small area, located in the historic center of Silves.
With major programmatic requirements, the construction should be developed in height. So on the -1 floor, there is a T0 apartment; on the 0th floor, the common areas of the family, living room and outdoor patio, which are interconnected as a way of expanding spaces and for better experiences between outdoors and indoors, and a kitchen; on the 1st floor, we find the master suite and on the 2nd floor two single bedrooms.
The materiality of the project intends to invoke the memory of the existing building in an innovative and interconnected way.
This is the proposal for a friend’s house that Start always wants to see happy.
