RODRIGUES SAMPAIO HOUSING

ABSTRACT The project is a refurbishment of a peculiar building in Praça de Dom João I, Porto. We were challenged to convert a clinic into apartments and to restore the connection with the courtyard previously covered. The concept of the interior layout is a linear simplification of the spaces.

MASS A battery of closets and shelves are placed surgically to rationalize the spaces and enclose all the services - toilette, laundry, storage and kitchen - generating a homogeneous organism that constantly dialogues with the existing building. The results of this approach are three different typologies of apartment drawn with the same concept and customized by different characters.
