CASA DE ROBERTO IVENS

CASA DE ROBERTO IVENS  XIX/1961/2009

Álvaro Siza Vieira

 

Álvaro Siza Vieira family house dates from the nineteenth century, it was  remodeled by the architect in 1961 at the request of his parents. Acquired by the Municipality of Matosinhos in 2007, it was subjected to slight remodeling work, guided by Siza, with the purpose of hosting the activities of the association Casa da Arquitectura between 2009 and 2017. Workspaces, the library, the exhibition hall, the archive or the small store, were adapted to the typology of the house, without betraying its scale and domesticity. The furniture and lamps, as well as the use of wood reveal details that only Siza seems to know how to design.
