Modern Residence by Topos Atelier de Arquitectura

Two storey contemporary Casa no Bom Jesus is located in Braga, Portugal, and was designed by local Topos Atelier de Arquitectura. Enjoy!

Description by Topos Atelier de Arquitectura

To meet the clients’ requirements we designed a black and white house with large terraces overlooking the city. The terraces’ drawings led us to involve the house in a heroically suspended ring.

Between this ring and the house a garden embraces the oak-trees. On the house’s south and west sides the terraces’ horizontal subbase planes could be aligned with the skyline.

The two-storey high living room was placed between these two events. The ring will probably be painted in white. The house was to be a wooden box but due to maintenance issues it will now be coated with patinated zinc.
