Eco-Resort in Pedras Salgadas, Portugal

Bornes de Aguiar, Pedras Salgadas, Portugal, 2012

The new eco-resort of Parque de Pedras Salgadas, Portugal, consists of a set of seven small houses in perfect harmony with the surrounding outstanding nature.
Designed in a modular prefabrication system but flexible to adapt to the specific places within the park, these houses result in several different combinations of the same three modules (entrance/bathing – living – sleeping) creating different morphologies and different dialogues with the surrounding nature, wisely occupying the empty spaces between the trunks oflarge trees and, at the same time, allowing each home to be unique, special and worth visiting.
The pitched roofs that caracterize the intervention redefine the contours of the park boundary and result, within the houses in comfortable but dynamic spaces.
The vain corner contradicts the structural logic of the house but creates the ilusion that the park is inside the house framing living nature pictures.
The outer coating in slate tile reffers to the local construction traditions and the slatted wood used when there is a balcony creates the perfect resting spaces.
