Dodged House

The Dodged house in Lisbon is located at the heart of the Mouraria neighbourhood, in a street that runs halfway down the hill, cutting the southern flank of the secondary valley of the Graça slope. The project stands out in how the building relates to the narrow street of Terreirinho: the existing spans are kept opaque, like other houses in the centre of Lisbon, which present blind facades. Inside the building, a void was constructed to reveal the four floors and the careful openings to the patios. The house’s name derives from a pun: while it pays homage to Irving Gill’s famous and already demolished Dodge House, whose modernist vision was grounded in the vernacular and/or colonial architecture of southern California, this building is also ‘dodged’ or elusive, as it turns its back to the street and gains existence from its inside.
