Casa Vale

CASA VALECASA VALECASA VALECASA VALE Previous slide Next slide Numbers & Facts Location: Portugal City: Caldas da Rainha Client: Private Year: 2021 Area: 200 m2 Status: In progress Theme: Architecture, Landscape Program: Residential Credits Architecture Team: Bruna Serralheiro, Joana Pimenta, Bernardo Vinagre  Architecture lead: Bruna Serralheiro Architecture coordination: Joana Pimenta Structural Eng.: Eng. José Capinha MEP: Eng. José Capinha Mais do que planos lançados ao terreno, a Casa do Vale compõe- se de vistas e enquadramentos. O horizonte revelou-se desde cedo uma das linhas orientadores do projeto. As vistas que a casa alcança exigiram um trabalho minucioso de enquadramentos visuais, tanto no seu interior como no seu exterior. Desta forma, o percurso é entendido como um conjunto de composições que se vão sucedendo, mantendo vivo o elemento de surpresa e interesse pelo que está por vir ao explorarmos a casa. A plasticidade do projeto é procurada através de materiais claros e orgânicos, para que a leitura da composição seja una. Pretende-se estuque branco nas paredes, telha plana branca nas coberturas inclinadas, e pedra lioz nas molduras, de forma a reflectir a claridade da luz por matizes e texturas diferentes. No interior procura-se o conforto da arquitectura chã, através do pinho e dos tons claros, em concílio com a versatilidade técnica da arquitetura industrial, numa reunião que se quer acima de tudo cuidada e despretensiosa. A estratégia de implantação prevê uma piscina, em comunicação com a sala de estar, e arranjos exteriores que possibilitam o acesso ao piso subterrâneo da garagem, ao mesmo tempo que se criam plataformas e pátios que servem o programa interior. O cunho da Casa do Vale é valer-se da abertura da sua condição. De se assumir humilde perante a beleza do sítio em que se encontra, mas de reservar para si o direito e a capacidade de crescer, de ir mais longe.

A morfologia da proposta pretende valorizar o imóvel original adicionando uma ampliação a tardoz.  Com a ampliação posterior ficam garantidas as condições não só para aumento das áreas habitáveis como também para relocalização das escadas que não interfira com largura de compartimentos habitáveis e, sobretudo, inserção de plataforma elevatória vertical que ligue todos os pisos: do estacionamento, ao piso dos quartos, passando pelos pisos sociais e do jardim a tardoz. Permite também o volume ampliado, aproveitando a demolição da fachada posterior original já bastante adulterada, garantir mais iluminação natural ao interior da moradia, sobretudo nesta sua orientação a Norte. A criação de largos vão envidraçados nesse sentido possibilita ao mesmo tempo que as novas fachadas que se distingam do Prédio existente, destacando assim visualmente as fachadas originais a manter, parte integrante do Conjunto Urbanístico que a intervenção proposta também pretende valorizar. No que respeita a cobertura do corpo ampliado, da mesma forma e apesar de não ser visível a partir da via pública, a mesma não deve mimetizar a cobertura original mas antes garantir que esta última se destaque. Nesse sentido, propõe-se a utilização de materiais distintos dos materiais originalmente utilizados na cobertura, de forma a diferenciar os distintos momentos de edificação.

It introduces dynamic aspects for urban, social, and economic regeneration, from the valued promenade to cultural attractions. Maintaining the historic building’s facades enhances Abrantes’ urban identity, serving as an integral representation of the collective experience of the historic area. The facade symbolizes history, nature symbolizes regeneration, and shared spaces signify growth and progression. The naturalistic design, integrating green areas, creates a public urban park that emphasizes walking areas, respecting existing urban boundaries. This envisions a strong pedestrian space qualification, valuing the intervention area as an entrance to the historic center. A new green square is proposed, connecting to surrounding accesses and creating a promenade between various proposed programs, including commercial areas, a multipurpose space, cinema, café & bookstore, and covered parking. The dematerialization of the built volume, concealed in the ground, is achieved through a “skin” of vegetation, including hedges, green roofs, climbing plants, shrubs, and subshrubs. The space can be experienced externally with pedestrian areas and internally with various collective-use spaces, creating dynamic experiences resulting from evolving utilization.

Viewed from the street, the house appears as a monolith suspended above the ground with no openings; however, this appearance is completely deconstructed, contrasting with its bright interior. Therefore, from the sidewalk level, a ramp invites us to enter the lot and elevates us to what we will call the first floor, where we find the hall and the social entrance of the house, located at its center. From this point, the house unfolds into two volumes: one more private, intended for the bedroom areas, and one more social, designated for the living, dining, and kitchen areas. Between these two volumes, a spacious courtyard provides independence and privacy to both areas, also helping to bring better illumination to all spaces and simultaneously creating an outdoor leisure area that extends to the lower level. The main entrance to the house is on the lower level, referred to as the ground floor, adjacent to the covered parking.

As a result, a new elevated Green Square arises as  building underneath as well as several public paths and green spaces. Our proposal of a new street across the Green Square contributes for the building’s integration in the urban grid and insures a straight connection to the street of Celeiros de Santa Maria while framing the castle. Surrounded by history, the new green square and street improve the urban space and define a new building that reintroduces the site in the network of public buildings. Two towers rise from the ground and activate the surrounding public space, representing the duality of the program – Library and Museum. The towers communicate with other vertical elements of the area such as the castle, the churches and the chimneys of old factories, representing a new benchmark of the city of Torres Vedras.
