FeaturedPatios of Petals: A Floral-Inspired Contemporary House

Nestled in the heart of Porto, Portugal, a city renowned for its rich history and stunning architecture, stands the “Patios of Petals” – a two-story house that is a testament to contemporary design. Crafted by the visionary Sandra Micaela Casinha Atelier in 2023, this architectural marvel draws inspiration from the organic movement of flower petals, creating a harmonious blend of nature and modern living.

The house’s design is characterized by a large “U” glazing and an internal curved structural wall that, along with the staircase, forms the heart of the house. The upper floor, embraced by the petal-like structures, is accentuated by the use of three materials: white, aluminum, and glass. The lower floor, where the petals land, showcases a similar triad of materials: glass, aluminum, and wood. This careful selection of materials serves to highlight the main actor – the organicist white volume.
