Project type:

My proposal it's a assambly hostel. The hostel designs suggested in the project wording imposes two important characteristics; minimize the visual impact and a detachable architecture. The spot selection is therefore a crucial aspect to meet the first characteristic. The second one will allow adjusting the hostel to the necessities of each event.
To determine the Project location, planning study of the settlement was carried out, valuating strengths and weaknesses. Fonte da Telha is a historical fishing settlement which does not currently meet regulations, colonizing without control protected natural areas. The spot is chosen to minimize the impact on the protected adjacent natural areas; therefore, a historical footprint study of Fonte da Telha is done to examine if the area where the project will be held does not further occupy the countryside.
The main idea of the Project is to exploit the hostel not only on a functional level with the program disintegration, but also with the separation of the skin and function to put it in relation with the existing structures. This arises at the time that a relationship between the existing volume and the projected one was sought, always giving importance to the project integration with the already existing structure. In the Urban study, some buildings in ruin or disuse were found. Hence, we decided to rehabilitate them for use it not only as integrated elements of the hostel into the urban plot, but also as a generating elements using the actual infrastructure to provide the hostel infrastructure. Moreover, using the historical foundation to introduce the new architecture would avoid increasing the urban footprint. I use the skin as a buffer against the strong winds that come from the Atlantic. At the same time, this skin is a sieve element space of the hostel relationship with the existing urban area.
The architectural answer on the close scale is the realization of a building system throughout a dry joint construction reusing elements climbing scaffolding systems and aluminum frames. Modulated that, depending on the function to be harbored would specialize, being the same construction principle for a habitation module, for a sanitary unit, and recreational module. The module comes as a technical closet whose structure is reused aluminum joinery, incorporating sealing and outside insulation, wood finish, and which includes all installations for its use and connected to the general network for its activation.
The outdoor module contains two more modules called BOX and FRAME. The BOX module arises from the relationship of several specialized technical closets. This would be collected by the FRAME module that would generate relationship spaces between the different BOX, being a new semi-public space. It will consist of an adaptive reused of Climbing scaffolding systems.
