In a small village near the city of Coimbra, 3 sisters inherit and share a land. They wanted to build a house that would join them for the second time in their lives, because the family houses they own are nowadays too large.

The implementation of the 3 houses elects as the main facade the south elevation, that adjoins the street and turns too the square at east.

Two other walls, these ones in concrete, are constructed parallel to the stone wall. These walls delimit the 3 lots and support the 3 houses, defining the suspension elements to the entire upper floor volume.

Between houses, on the upper floor, there are interruptions that articulate transversal routes, visually connecting the 2 parallel streets or the 2 gardens and providing each house a volumetric autonomy.

As we go up we enter a corridor, centered in space, with low ceilings and covered in warm coloured wood, that hides the structure and creates an autonomous volume. In this hallway, doors hidden by large panels reveal several functional spaces.

Through this the standardization of the night lighting of the 3 houses is achieved, emerging from the extensive glazing turned to river Mondego fields.

The design of this new element wants to give a sense of continuity and consistency to the project of these 3 houses. This set stands out from its surroundings for its contemporary design, but integrates in the accuracy of the construction details for its scale, volumes proportion, colors and used materials.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessMemorial of the Victims of Communism in Estonia / Armin Valter + Joel KopliArticles12th International Alvar Aalto Symposium: ‘Crafted’ – The Ingredients of ArchitectureArticles Share ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/222360/3-houses-3-sisters-ines-cortesao-jose-pedro-caetano Clipboard Houses Photographs CopyHouses•Portugal Year:  “COPY” CopyAbout this officeInês Cortesão + José Pedro CaetanoOfficeFollowProductConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesHousesPortugalPublished on April 03, 2012Cite: “3 Houses 3 Sisters / Inês Cortesão + José Pedro Caetano” 03 Apr 2012.
