Kaputt! was founded in 2004 as a platform for the collaborative work of eight young architects. They have earned some notoriety as they were acknowledged with an honorable mention in the international competition organized by the Carlsberg Group, for the large-scale urban development of the company’s property in the outskirts of Copenhagen.
I am proud to present you one of their latest projects: a single family house located in the village of Sarilhos Grandes, in Montijo, Portugal. The house plan is determined from the programmatic separation of two distinct bodies; two autonomous units that differentiate the social and private areas of the residence. This distinction is exposed both on its internal organization and on the external expression of the architectural volumetry, whose definition is extended by the walled perimeter that encircles the garden area.

The functional setting is simple. The social volume is more organic, designed for the communitarian family life, in sharp contrast with the private wing. The garden offers an intimate external space and a generous entrance of natural light.

The garden wall is also assumed as part of the architecture of the house, as it suggests a filtered visual connection with the external territory, its trees and hedges becoming a part of its enveloping atmosphere.
