NOARQ adds suspended blood-red cabin to 'q s t' house renovation in portugal

portuguese architecture practice NOARQ has renovated a house in vila nova de famalicão, a town in the north of portugal, adding a suspended blood-red cabin above its entrance. titled q s t, the house rises from broad blocks of blue granite into the wilderness, like a fortification, indistinct from the supporting walls at the edge of the street. its exterior has been revamped with a series of details, including the gate, the eaves, and the window frames, all of which have been painted in the same, blood red color as the suspended wooded room.NOARQ adds suspended blood-red cabin to 'q s t' house renovation in portugalall images by joao morgado

 

 

the roadside exterior of NOARQ‘s q s t house exists in continuation to the supporting walls at the edge of the street, which now backs up the old farmland, now transformed into a garden. the closed off silhouette is opened up by timid windows on the upper floor, while by the connection with the street, a sequence of cattle crevices illuminates the current kitchen. the building stretches itself till the blood-colored gate, pointing to the threshing floor moulded into the granite of the street wall.NOARQ adds suspended blood-red cabin to 'q s t' house renovation in portugal

 

 

above the entrance, tended towards the east, a wooded room, painted in the color of the gate, of the eaves and of the window frames, lays suspended. the building was cleaned up of picturesque motifs, sheds, shutters and loose exoticism. on the inside, the architects redesigned each and every constructive piece, reinventing the stripped reality.
