Carrapateira House

Aljezur, Portugal


How do we insert a mansion in a 70m2 plot?

This is a long and narrow plot that links together two streets of very different heights. For this site our client had envisioned a spacious and fully equipped house, with exterior space and an ensuite bathroom in each bedroom. The greatest ambition, when fitting this dense program into the spot, was to offer quality of life to its dwellers. Fresh air, sunlight and a view over the surroundings.
The public area of the house occupies the whole ground floor, forming a massive crossed ventilation channel. The rest of the program – bedrooms and bathrooms – is fitted into the subsequent floors, where different spaces intertwine. The volume is separated into two by the staircase, the house’s main vertical point and source of zenithal lighting.
