Triangular House

The establishment of a convent in the 18th century opened a steep street with the same name nearby, where this single-family house now appears on a triangular lot with just 47m2. The floor area’s minute geometry conditioned the character and low-cost construction of this three-floor house with a terraced roof to enjoy the Tagus view. Constructed with 18-cm concrete walls, the exterior is clad and painted in olive green. The interior presence of concrete is predominant and combined with painted metalwork on the stairs and exterior opening frames. The attention paid to the acute angle, to the south, determined specific solutions for each floor: hidden at the entrance, it is dematerialised in a floor-to-ceiling mirror on the first floor, only to be broken on the second to obtain a volumetric compromise and space from the adjacent building. On the third floor it no longer exists.
