Guia House is a project designed by Contacto Atlântico. This project took place in one Guia Casa-Mãe in Cascais. The house, developed mostly on the ground floor on a vast plot of land, was characterized by the rustic and simple architecture of the small houses of Cascais of the 20th century. This intervention was done in all divisions of the house as well as in the outdoor spaces. Photography by Contacto Atlântico.
The principal objective was to offer spaces that, through small changes, would serve modern domestic activities without losing the identity of the house.
The main interventions took place in the kitchen, in the bathrooms, and in the north wing of the house, which include the swimming pool area, through the use of rustic materials, the restructuration of spaces, the installation of new equipment, and the recovery of some original equipment of the house.
The intervention created a perfect harmony between the pure and original construction and the modern way of living.
