A Lousado au Portugal, dans la ville nouvelle de Famalicao, l'agence Correia Ragazzi Arquitectos glisse cette maison dans une exploitation agricole. Une maison sur deux niveaux, inscrite dans la pente et orientée au sud. Sur ce projet,l'agence Correia Ragazzi Arquitectos précise:
"The house is situated on a farm characterized by long platforms towards the river with rich slate walls that define different areas of cultivation. The house faces south, towards the river and the less built area, framed by the fruit trees. The maintenance of the beautiful and locally traditional walls was extremely important, in such a way that they participate on the spatial organization. The house sits on one of the platforms organizing its program in two floors. The bedroom patios on the upper Doorframe the least interesting view and define a more private space inside the farm. The plastic possibilities of the materials chosen are determinant and were consciously introduced as aesthetic means without questioning the programmatic issues of the constructive logic since we believe that appearance and vision are determinant for the outcome silhouette."
