AZO SEQUEIRA ARQUITECTOS – THE DOVECOTE
Finalist on the BIGMAT’15 Architecture Awards, Berlim, Germany
This is an emotional design!
The demand to reform an old dovecote in the backyard of a residence led to transform it in to a play house for the children and a balneary to serve the pool on the ground floor.
Inspired by magic, fantasy and also by the childhood dreams and memories…
The old dovecote was transformed in to a minimal concrete «tree house» that represent these memories and fantasies of pure and peaceful way.
The main volume seems to be levitating as a tree house, but simultaneously it had to be balanced and pure.
Some elements remained original as the triangular window through which entered doves.
