Caseiros House

This small house for the caretaker of the Quinta da Boavista replaces an existing agricultural construction. It is the reinterpretation of a vernacular typology composed of simple volumes set at a right angle to the stone wall of the terraces that shape the landscape. The entrance is set back inside a porch, framing the view over the river Douro. Inside, we sought to make the spaces coincide with the outside form, with the simplest possible division and no transitional or circulation spaces. The materials used are a continuation of the ones already existing in the farm: white rendered stucco, ceramic roof tiles, stone walls, wooden trellis and remaining carpentry painted a deep blue.
