WEB EXTRA: Workbook: Contemporary in Portugal 

Portuguese architect Nuno Lacerdo Lopes blends minimalism and warmth in a house in Valongo. Photography courtesy CNLL/Nelson Garrido | www.ngphoto.com.ptFor our summer issue, we're taking a look out at some amazing residences around the world. With so many houses and so little space, we're showcasing some of these stunning homes here. Up first, a house designed by Atelier Nuno Lacerdo Lopes in Valongo, Portugal. At first glance, it's cooly contemporary, but a range of natural materials with a rustic feel, temper the starkness of its spaces. We talked with Lopes to get his thoughts on it.

House on the Flight of Birds


Located on the north side of S. Michael Island in Azores, Portugal, this residence, designed by Bernardo Rodrigues, offers diverse patios and covered courtyards on the ground floor offering protection from rain and opens all living spaces to the natural surrounding landscape by glass walls receded from the exterior. In addition, more enlosed and protected private rooms are found on the upper floor. This strategy effectively responds to the frequent strong winds and showers that are present in this microclimate farmland.

The typology follows an almost classical Palladian and Scamozzi central plan design with a double height living room and then two lateral wings enclosing the kitchen on one and the circulations for the first floor and roof terrace on the other.

Green-Roofed Municipal Pools of Povoação, Portugal

Designed by Barbosa and Guimaraes Arquitectos, the Municipal Pools of Povoação in Portugal are housed in a series of basalt rock volumes cut into the side of the hill on a site that was formerly used by the city for outdoor sports. Inside, the building is naturally lit by skylights that pierce holes through the green roof and appear like plugs across the surface.
