Miguel Marcelino is the architect responsible for the project entitled House over Warehouse, which is a simple and not too picky residence for those who want to experience comfort and the pleasure of having exactly what they need , neither more, nor less.

It is located in Chícharo, Torres NovasPortugal and represents a good combination between the white exterior walls clad in brick and the large windows that permit the natural light to penetrate the indoor space. Because of that we can say that this home is bright on the inside and on the outside as well.

From the architects:

“The briefing was to build a three-bedroom house on top of a warehouse built in the 80′s, where part of the roof was made with a flat slab and a small balcony, precisely with that idea of later building the house.

Given the constraints of the existing warehouse, the house shape turns out to be automatically set: a box that rests on the existing structure. The rooms are placed to the east, the toilets to the west, as well as the kitchen, looking to a centennial olive tree.

The existing balcony will be maintained and “duplicated” as a shading element. The living room is placed south where its south/east corner is diagonally cut in a way that the balcony could enlarge and offer an outdoor area protected from the sun and rain, overlooking the valley.”
