CS House, Modern Design and Architecture in Portugal
Here is an interesting contemporary residence that caught our attention from Pitagoras Architects. Located in Guimarães, Portugal, this modern project had to be integrated within its unleveled landscape and “defeat its accentuated slope”. The residence has three floors, but only two of them are above ground. A strong indoor outdoor connection was the main objective when planning this project Here is a small description from the architects: “All floors are contemplated with covered or uncovered verandas and patios that are closed off or open to the landscape, creating variable possibilities of inhabiting spaces, taking advantage of the light and scenery that change with the different seasons. Thus, the dense white volume acquires, with its large openings and differentiating materials, contrasting hollows.” An impressive pool turns this house into a fun and entertaining crib, aside from being extremely functional.
