Oeiras House, a project of Pedro Domingos Arquitectos. An inwardly facing house where the rooms are located around a central courtyard and small gardens.
João Carmo Simões photographer is responsible for transmitting the own introverted architecture of this building. 220.0 m2 form this Portuguese house averts his gaze from the outside. A home that is a finalist for the FAD Architecture Awards 2016. Thus, Oeiras House, is anchored to an inner courtyard that acts as the core of the housing.
Oeiras house averts his view of the residential environment that surrounds it. Austere architecture that looks to end the details. The interiors of this home create continuity between spaces without doors, with different heights, creating environments able to differentiate uses.
Elements such as light, shadows and space, are used as a creative basis for the implementation of Oeiras House. Concrete structure, pigmented interior and exterior walls, frames with glass and metal doors. Details that unfold in all rooms of this Portuguese house and allow visitors to move between inside and outside, without limits.
Thus there are no interior or exterior spaces, these thanks to the wide variety of views that the house offers unified.
Oeiras House, an introvert housing that connects interior and exteriorr
An interior design project that enhances the natural light and the movement within the housing. The transformation of the space into a unit.
The central courtyard is the only limited space of this housing. A space where lights and shadows, are able to reference the atmosphere of a traditional Mediterranean courtyard.
Oeiras house, a house that changes its orientation and has no limits inside. Doorless and connected in all rooms with the outside. This Portuguese housing plays with materials, heights and light in architecture creating a sort of ‘oasis’ urbanite.
