Lake House in Portugal Paying Tribute to Modern Architecture

Frederico Valsassina Architects designed a lake house in Aroeira, Portugal. The residence displays a modern architecture, consisting of volumes with different functions and emphasizing the indoor/ outdoor interaction: “We wanted a home that understands the autonomy of different spatialities – social / private, day / night – with the creation of a terrace adjacent to the pool. Taking advantage of the conditions of deployment of the lot, both in terms of topography and its limits, the position of the villa emphasizes the creation of dominant visual axis in the direction of the immediate surroundings of the lake. Indeed, the service areas protect strategically, social areas, occupying the most disadvantaged local deployment. Investing in the gradual transition between the inside and outside, the terrace is assumed as a natural extension of the living area, promoting ongoing dialog with the environment and flexibility in the proposed appropriation of different spaces“. Find any distinctive features which make this home inspirational?

Energy during the construction process was saved by using FSC-certified glulam timber instead of steel to create the building’s distinctive wavy roof, while the store’s external walls use hemclad, a highly innovative insulator made from hemp, which, like all plants, absorbs CO2 from the atmosphere as it grows. An 80,000 litre water tank below ground provides water for the store’s toilets and waters the site’s green wall’, which provides natural insulation, acts as an all-natural pollution filter near the car park, and helps to encourage biodiversity. The result is a building that uses a fraction of the energy of structures of a similar size, and is still very popular with local shoppers.

What is new and exciting now can quickly begin to look tired and out of fashion, so the best buildings don’t just consider what will be interesting to look at now, but also how it might look to people in five, fifty or even a hundred years’ time. 2013’s hotly contested RIBA Stirling Prize went to Witherford Watson Mann Architects for their work on Astley Castle, Warwickshire. In what RIBA Past President Stephen Hodder has described as an extreme retrofit, the project essentially saw a new building inserted subtly into the heart of the old, with a new, two storey residence now hidden within the sandstone walls of the ruins of this medieval castle, to be used as a holiday home for up to eight guests
