House in Guerra Junqueiro street

Local: rua Guerra Junqueiro, Porto
Intervention: Dwelling house


Adapted to a plot of around 400 m2, it was developed on two floors, the upper floor being smaller. With a careful study of volumes and roofs, maximum benefit was obtained from insolation and ventilation.

It is a house that lives in comfortable conditions, practically without any source of heating or cooling. An outdoor pool attached to the walls, facing the South/West quadrante, protected from the North, is used (in Porto) from May to October.

Architecture: Vasco Morais Soares
