House in Baião: A Wooden Refuge in Portugal
Welcome to House in Baião, a contemporary vacation house located in Portugal. Built upon ancient ruins, Traço Alternativo designed this house to blend in with the bucolic green setting while preserving the memory of the preexisting house.
Natural wood was used as the privileged material for both structure and coverings, inside and out, creating its own language and innovating with its simple, raw beauty. With its wood details, contrasts between wood and concrete and the feeling of comfort and order that the wooden ceilings create, House in Baião is the perfect wooden refuge.
