A detached house located in the heart of Gaia, on a busy and vibrant street. On a street with a large flow of pedestrians and vehicles, the challenge of complying with the City Council’s guidelines, which required the first floor to be set back, was also faced.

In this context, a project is created that not only responds to regulatory requirements, but is also a new perspective for urban living in this urban location. The result is a house that combines form with functionality and incorporates the elements that stand out in the urban fabric.

Living in the city

Drawing in the urban fabric, drawing a city

The house on Rua José Mariani, in Gaia, represents a contribution to the ever-evolving urban landscape of this area. This project tries to strike a careful balance between integration into the growing urban fabric and the creation of a functional residential space.

A translucent metal railing plays a crucial role in defining the boundary between public and private space, giving the home privacy.

This project reflects the ongoing commitment to seek functional solutions in the design of single-family homes.

The way of life

the importance of the private sector

The introduction of the translucent metal railing played an essential role in this project. This element acts as a distinct visual barrier, clearly delineating the boundaries between the public spaces of the busy street and the private environment of the house.

On the other hand, a unique visual connection is established between the interior of the house and the urban context. This creates a sense of continuity and interaction between the internal space and its surroundings, allowing residents to connect visually with the outside world while enjoying their private comfort.
