Volume in motion

Located on the outskirts of Cascais, close to the border with the municipality of Oeiras, the building is located at an residential area.
Side facade, detail

The Student Residence near Carcavelos University is developed around an outdoor central space for welcoming, reception, meeting and getting together. The U-shaped design, with the rooms in the east and west wings, created ample outdoor space, facing south for protection from the wind and with a strong relationship with the indoor social and distribution areas. This large courtyard is intended to reinterpret life inside the block. The base of the building on the main façade is marked by the large windows and a large, curved canopy providing shade, highlighting the entrance and marking off the social areas. The around 200 rooms are distributed among the different floors and are at a higher level than the courtyard on the entrance floor, to ensure privacy. On the upper floors, the building façade is intensely marked by the mismatch of angles and volumes on a different plane from the façade and the windows, staggered from floor to floor. These elements introduce dynamics to a building, making it come alive, and in constant motion.
