Scope and Content

This project series documents the Casa Manuel Magalhães in Porto, Portugal. The office archivist identified this project as 29/60; in the past the office identified the project as number 119. The office assigned the dates 1967-1971 for this project.

The project consists of a concrete single-storey house located on Avenida dos Combatentes in Porto, Portugal. Lawyer Manuel Magalhães commissioned a rental house, but became personally involved during the construction and decided to move in with his family. There’s no direct opening to the street and the building is surrounded by a cement wall. In 2001, Siza designed an intercom for the house.

Documenting this project are sketches, studies, plans, elevations, and details. Photographs, negatives, and slides document the site and building work. Textual documentation includes correspondence with the city of Porto, Manuel Magalhães and Fernando Teixeira Rodrigues.
