Residential Building in Merim
Ponte de Lima, Portugal
- Topos Atelier de Arquitectura
- Ponte de Lima, Portugal
These two buildings, which group collective housing and townhouses, perform a transition in scale between the individual urban housing and a set of collective buildings and equipments in progress in this new city district.
The idea of connecting through ongoing plans the houses, a property limit and a residential building, extends the example of the existing fabric in Ponte de Lima, where the masonry walls have a key role in the continuity and the definition of urban spaces.
