when spaceworkers took on a commission to design a private residence in rural portugal, their client approached them with one simple challenge: to design a space for books. after fleeting notions of classical libraries with sliding stairs to reach high bookshelves, the team followed this idea to create a tall volume capable of generating the necessary composition and hierarchy of interior spaces.

designing from the inside out, spaceworkers began by differentiating the interior spaces according to function. with some rooms soaring to double-height ceilings or clever voids of light, the design led to an uneven roof plane that protrudes and recesses. in this way, the architect considered the roof as a fifth façade, which influenced the idealization of the remaining elevations.
