Located in Alcacer do Sal, Portugal, the Assisted Residences by Aires Mateus Arquitectos does an exemplary job of housing a diverse program behind such a regular repetitive facade. Conceived as a fluctuating 3D checkered mass, this pixelated nursing home follows the rolling topography of the site.
A perforated project that bridges the boundaries of structured and organic, the Assisted Residences by Aires Mateus provides a series of indoor-outdoor thresholds for light and escape. Between the open patio roof and the stark bleached interiors, this institution is the embodiment of balance.
