This building is an Elderly Home for the "Teachers Social Solidarity Association” in Carcavelos, municipality of Cascais.
Built in a site with a 5.050sqm area, the building has an implementation area of 1.390sqm and it is composed by 2 floors and 27 rooms that will host 41 users.
The building is structured in 3 bodies linked with each other by the central volume which hosts the entry / reception. Almost closed to the urban road, the building opens up for more interior spaces defined between the different volumes that constitute the building.
Constructively the building has a reinforced concrete structure with pillars and massive slabs. The facades will be made with double wall of concrete block thermally insulated and reinforced mortar from the outside. A paneling in bluish marble from Cascais gives the final touch (in all the perimeter of the building at the surface), to the facade white plaster.
The roof of both volumes, after thermally insulated will be covered with pebble.
