REFÚGIO NA MONTARIA

CONSTRUCTION

The refuge, located on a steep terrain in the village of São Lourenço da Montaria, is characterized by a monolithic horizontal concrete volume, oriented and with some expression.

Facing the Serra d'Arga, it covers the program of the house/refuge (living room and kitchen, bathroom and bedroom), with an unlimited pool on its upper face, in homage to the village's community tanks. The house is organized around an interior patio which provides natural lighting in the space, giving it an intimate atmosphere.

“THE HOUSING IS ORGANIZED AROUND AN INDOOR PATIO WHICH ENSURES THE NATURAL LIGHTING OF THE SPACE, GIVING IT AN INTIMIST ENVIRONMENT.”
