Casa Gate’s Project is a reinterpretation of a XIXth Century House from Porto, rebuilding a ruin, but supporting its procedures in formal and conceptual aspects that are commonly used in this typology.Save this picture!© José Campos | Architectural photographyThe great flexibility and resilience of this model was tested here, with transformations, additions and improvements that try to establish a compromise point between the old and the new. All of these reinterpretations occurred maintaining the founding conceptual principles of the house, avoiding, therefore, the destruction of its DNA.Save this picture!DiagramThe characteristics of the pre-existent construction raised two main issues:- Segregation of interior spaces: too many divisions, that give place a lot of spaces of small dimension, complicated circulations and, low incidence of natural light.- Constructive consistence: wood structures harmed by humidity and fungus, as well as invasive interventions in the back façade.Save this picture!© José Campos | Architectural photographyProject’s started emerging from the ideas taken out of this diagnose, together with client’s wishes, building some conceptual platforms:- Structurally defining elements will be kept and/or rehabilitated.- Add one floor.- Alteration in the main façade, to insert garage door.- Simplification of inner spaces, to allow light and renewed air circulation. – Utilization of contemporary constructive materials, but keeping the same philosophy: simplicity and resilience in ground-floor, and bigger refinement in the upper floors.Save this picture!© José Campos | Architectural photographyAfter recognizing and establishing these premises, the project defined itself automatically. On ground floor are placed the technical areas (garage/laundry), and the back façade space (kitchen) opens to the patio. The similar size/proportion of the close interaction between kitchen and patio establishes a very rich and intimate relationship.Save this picture!© José Campos | Architectural photographyFrom here on, the house articulates itself always around the staircase. As we go to upper floors, different spatial and visual relations are experimented, between spaces and this vertical spine. Open spaces, semi-open spaces, closed spaces and platforms.Save this picture!Ground Floor Plan AfterSave this picture!First Floor Plan AfterSave this picture!Second Floor Plan AfterThese ideas were materialized with a great concern on scale. The will of keeping high ceiling’s height demanded it. The leaps between a “common scale”, high ceilings, voluptuous footers and the intimate scale of the bedroom floor were managed with care and dedication, to allow integration, rather than exclusion.Save this picture!© José Campos | Architectural photographyThe new structure follows and respects the logic of the previous one: supporting itself in the stone walls, it sets the floor plans free from additional structural elements. The used materials reveal a high concern in reaching a formal depuration, low maintenance, durability, and, simultaneously low cost.Save this picture!© José Campos | Architectural photographyProject gallerySee allShow less6 Firms Highlighted as New York’s “Promising” New PracticesArchitecture NewsHow Minecraft is Inspiring the Next Generation of Young ArchitectsArticles Share Save this picture!© José Campos | Architectural photography+ 38 Share “COPY” CopyAbout this officePedro OliveiraOfficeFollowProductsWoodSteelConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationPortoPortugalPublished on February 05, 2016Cite: “Casa Gate / Pedro Oliveira” 05 Feb 2016.
