Incredible Portuguese Eco-Resort
Don’t you just want sometimes to run away to the woods and stay there for a while? Continuing the theme on outdoor resort living, here is an incredible Portuguese eco-resorts presented by Luis Rebelo de Andrade and Diogo Aguiar!
Parque de Pedras Salgadas Residence
Located in Parque de Pedras Salgadas, this unique construction is actually a set of similar mini-eco resorts, right in the middle of a unique park area. The seven little hubs are cluttering to make a form, and have the basic contemporary appliances. As you have probably guessed, these Portuguese hubs are made in modular prefabrication system and made to be flexible to adapt to the needs. Each set is made equipped with entrance and bathing, then living room, and of course a sleeping place.
Being completed in 2012, the total area of the eco-residence can boast of 687,96 square meters total, and features all of the necessary conveniences for the resting people. The project was made in collaboration with Madalena Rebelo de Andrade, Raquel Jorge, João Jesus for UNICER. Despite the humble and contemporary stone like appearance, the set of seven houses looks very natural right in the middle of a beautiful park area in Pedras Salgadas, Portugal. One of the main advantages of the set is of course it’s great location and incredible union with nature that it offers, where not the last is the outer coating in slate tile that is reminiscent of the traditional construction, not to mention the view on the surrounding forest green landscape. One of the most important features is that this modular set can be reconverted to suit the client. Here is additional information by the company:
“…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 of large trees…The pitched roofs that characterize 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 illusion that the park is inside the house framing living nature pictures. “
