LIVRAMENTO HOUSE

São Miguel, Azores

Livramento House is an ongoing project for a couple’s private house in São Miguel island. The site is characterised by a deep slope following the north/south direction. In an intermediate level a ground bearing wall and a platform were created in the past giving space for constructions. The new house will follow the same logic of an existing ruin: a two-floor volume unifying both ground levels, anchored to the bearing wall in lava stone. The social area and entrance will be located on the upper floor, in continuation with the meadow and property entrance, while bedrooms and service areas will sit bellow, in connection with the south side garden. The interiors reflect the owners practical and easy going way of life. The social area was designed to be a luminous open space extended outside trough a covered terrace. On the ground floor, the bedrooms have direct connection to the garden and the site wonderful views.
