Alcabideche-Vet Veterinary Clinic
Design of a Veterinary Clinic in Alcabideche, Cascais.
The clinic is deployed on a plot with a soft drop, being composed of a body in concrete and opaline glass "suspended" on the ground thanks to the foundation beams.
From the functional scheme of any Veterinary Clinic came the design of a corridor with rooms on both sides. In order to break the monotony of such a long space and provide the entrance of natural light, the volumes were moved away. From that detachment spans emerged.
The concept was explored and pulled up to the limit after moving the volumes in the other direction as well creating bumps and recesses, causing the building to develop itself according to a logic of a central parallelepiped and flat roof body with various volumes attached to it, allowing the necessary permeability to understand the daily activities of a veterinary clinic.
