Casa Vila Franca

Best Implemented Project of Private Residence

About the project
The house is located in Viana do Castelo, Portugal, in an area of low density single family homes.
It is a self-contained house, seeking privacy, creating various environments with a relatively simple functional organization, consisting of 2 floors.
We have a ground floor with spans strategically designed for the land, a land where green spaces predominate. The exterior is brought into the interior of different frames, creating unique relationships with the garden.
On the upper floor, we have the rooms and sanitary facilities, facing an outdoor garden placed on the ground floor roof.
