Stunning Ondulating Home in the Azores: House on the Flight of Birds

House on the Flight Freshome 03 Stunning Ondulating Home in the Azores: House on the Flight of Birds

House on the Flight of Birds was designed by Portuguese architect Bernardo Rodrigues and is located on S. Michael Island in the Azores. With a highly original architecture consisting of curved volumes combined with unexpected sheltering panels and odd-shaped windows, this residence is truly spectacular. According to the architects, “the microclimate of this farmland offers frequent wind and showers so the first design strategy was to block those winds with a wall, offer diverse patios and covered courtyards on the ground floor protected from rain and open all living space to the natural green around by using glass walls receded from the exterior. On the upper-floor there are the private rooms more enclosed and protected.” We were charmed by the roof terrace, a perfect place for relaxation where the inhabitants can enjoy views over the island’s shore. A creative architecture solution for sheltering a private residence, don’t you agree? [Photography is by Iwan Baan]

    Interesting shape! But the roof without rails looks unsafe.
