SAMI-arquitectos has designed a holiday house on the island of Pico, Portugal. Built inside a ruin, the project called E/C House measures 214m² (2,303ft²).
A ruin was the starting point for the design of a holiday house on the island of Pico. The project came from the will to maintain a ruin and thinking of a house that would value it, a house that could be modelled to it and take advantage at the same time, offering the most diverse and complex possibilities of living than the former typology.
Since the building is approached at the level of the covering, because of the slope of the land, we designed all the covering of the project as if they were decks, allowing to be used as sitting places or for contemplation.
