house 39

For the 120 houses in the peripheral plat of the Ponte de Lima Golf, in addition to the plan to obtain the building permit, the atelier also developed 4 house prototypes, and a set of regulations as to design the dwellings – zoning laws.
Furthermore, a model house was built to set an example of the implantation, the volume and of the kind of materials aimed at.
We intended to exemplify in order to encourage the creation of a coherent building set that ensured privacy and views over the golf course for each dweller.
As time went by we were astounded at each emerging house.
To our great surprise, the model-house was distorted.
Despite the quality of some projects, the main objective was perverted. Instead of obtaining a unique and unitary settlement, we see the selfishness of individual expressions.
