The House of the Tractor
The House of the Tractor| Tomar| 1998-2000| The House of the Tractor is a small agricultural warehouse built from a regular armed concrete which walls have been made by grey cement brick. The lower level is totally open towards the street helping the agricultural material storage, while the mezzanine is used for keeping the harvests| To enable the space’s natural ventilation the south wall is made of massive adobe bricks, set in a non-compact way, allowing the existence of small openings and consequentially an interior sun light exposure| The house doesn’t have any kind of finishing treatment| Photographs: Sérgio Mah
