The project consists in the construction of a weekend house in the Atlantic costal village called Odeceixe. The project strategy consists in organize a weekend house program divided in three floors of 28sm each. The main element in the house is a stair made in structural wood panel with 27mm that undertakes a nuclear position in the house.
The program sets a small kitchen and dining in the ground floor, two bedrooms in the middle floor and the living and reading room in the top floor, the roof terrace can be accessed by a alternating stair tread in the living area.
The elevations, intentionally, break the traditional code of the low-rise townhouses of Odeceixe to a vertical facade setup.
The flexibility of the structural wood panel defines the stair, floors and most of the furniture in the house giving it a specific character for the defined program.
The reduced space of the spaces is balanced by the dual functions implicit in the furniture design, in the stairs with storage, the bench/storage in the dining or the cabinet in the reading room as a seating area.
In the back street, recently defined from an alluvial steam, a covered terrace invites the inhabitants in the house to use this new public space in the warmer days.
