Calçada House is located in Vila de Paraíso in the north of Portugal. There was an existing house from the 18th century and several annex buildings with several trees in old manor with 5000 sqm.

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 floor of the main house is assigned to public space in the ground floor like living room or office and private space such as bedroom or bathroom occupy the second floor.
