MM House


Intervening in a typical residence of the Oporto urban tissue it’s, by itself, a reason for the memory theme to run through our thought, as the memory, itself, begins to delineate like a program, a “tool” capable of functioning as a moderator element between the “old” and the “new”.

This project tried to recreate the habitation spaces (an element that is a container and a generator of memories by itself), preserving the identity of the architectonic object, but with a greater cosmopolitan and contemporaneous touch, searching a symbiosis between two languages chronologically distant, while intending to create an “actualized” architectonic object that belongs to the sensorial universe of this place in Oporto city.
