Calçada House is located in Vila de Paraíso in the north of Portugal. There were existing house from 18th century and several annex buildings with several trees in old manor with 5000 m². The site was divided by the buildings scattered throughout the project site, and each part was designed as unique place. We refurbished them to serve as a residence and a guest house.
The entrance approach path under grapevine trellis appears after passing the rebuilt entrance gate. This approach path leads visitors to the extended part with an entrance hall and a bedroom. We can see the path to the guest house and stair hall from the entrance hall. The ground oor of the main house is assigned to public space in the ground oor like living room or o ce and private space such as bedroom or bathroom occupy the second oor. The main house has cross shape plan with the stair hall in centre. The entertainment space is located at north side, entrance hall is at east side, o ce is at south side, and living room and kitchen are at west side of the stair hall at ground oor level. In the second oor, there are master bedroom, bathroom and closet at north side, bedrooms are at east side and south side.
