Located in a valley on top of a rock, this house, previously in ruins, it opens up completely to the outside, establishing a spatial continuity between the field and the house.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraConceptually, the existing ruin is assumed as a shell, where inside is born a new volume of wood that receives the private program.Save this picture!Floor PlanThe big window of the living area allows you to increase the area to the terrace and bring light into the house. The existing fireplace brings light  to the toilet, giving to all internal spaces a relation with the outside.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe idea to use wood in the ceiling, interior walls, doors and windows aims to contrast with the cold of the existing stone walls. The concrete floor and manual tile reflect the typical and vernacular identity of preexisting home.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraThe small details, from the gate, the light holes in the chimney and the use of green, have the purpose to reach the Sintra aesthetic that resides in our imagination.Save this picture!© Francisco NogueiraProject gallerySee allShow lessInterview with Asymptote Architecture: “We Are Spatial Engineers”InterviewsBritish Airways i360 Named Most Slender Tower In the World by Guinness World RecordArchitecture News Share Year:  “COPY” Portugal 2015 CopyAbout this officeManuel Cachão TojalOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesPortugalPublished on February 19, 2016Cite: “Chanca House / Manuel Cachão Tojal” 19 Feb 2016.
