On the 17th June 2017 a major wildfire started at Pedrógão Grande and spread through the forest to Figueiró dos Vinhos, Castanheira de Pêra, Sertã, Penela, Góis and Pampilhosa da Serra affecting around 500 houses (259 of which were primary homes). 64 people died trying to escape the fires.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGFollowing the tragedy, citizens and institutions made donations to help the reconstruction of the houses and lives affected by the fires. Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, responsible for one of the major funds, contracted Working with the 99%, Coop to provide technical assistance to the houses’ reconstruction process, in which Ateliermob made the projects for 7 houses.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGMore than just rebuilding the lost houses as they were, our main goal was to improve the living conditions of these communities, with particular attention to the fact that most of the population was elderly.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGSave this picture!Section CCSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGAntónio Nunes’ HouseThe preservation of the stone walls was an important principle in this process, in order to keep the memory of the destroyed houses as well as the strong image of the houses of this area of Portugal. We kept the general volume of the house as well as the interior stone walls, changing only the necessary to accommodate the new program and infrastructures. In order to design a perfectly acessible house, we centered the program in a single floor – the upper one, leaving the lower to storage. The fireplace is the central element of the social space of the house. A big southeast oppening is directly related to the patio providing light and ventilation.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SGProject gallerySee allShow lessObafemi Awolowo University: A Look at Africa’s Most Beautiful CampusArticlesMasquerade Photography Studio / 123 architectsSelected Projects Share Tiago Mota Saraiva António Nunes’ House / ateliermobSave this projectSaveAntónio Nunes’ House / ateliermobSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG + SG+ 22Curated by Matheus Pereira Share “COPY” Portugal Photographs: Fernando Guerra | FG + SG Manufacturers Brands with products used in this architecture project Architects: ateliermob Area Area of this architecture project Year: Photographs 2018 Houses Lead Architect: ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/934894/antonio-nunes-house-ateliermob Clipboard Area: 1765 ft² Year Completion year of this architecture project António Nunes’ House / ateliermob “COPY” ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOrhttps://www.archdaily.com/934894/antonio-nunes-house-ateliermob Clipboard CopyAbout this officeateliermobOfficeFollowProductsStoneConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesRefurbishmentRenovationResidential ArchitecturePortugalPublished on March 10, 2020Cite: “António Nunes’ House / ateliermob” [Casa de António Nunes / ateliermob] 10 Mar 2020.
