House JA was envisioned to combine a rural and urban lifestyle and the result was PERFECT! “The existent stone ruins, a vestige of a traditional home and the configuration of the lot were the main aspects of the new project. The first principle was to separate the new and the old construction, even if they are connected inside.”, you can read at freshome.

One of the principles was to separate the new and the old construction, even if they are connected inside. A stone volume represents the existent building; a concrete volume the new one.

The second one, was to introduce light in the middle of the building. Two different empty spaces were generated: the entrance, and the heart of this home – the courtyard. As you can see here.

Architect Ernesto Pereira envisioned this original contemporary timber-clad residence called SilverWoodHouse. When contacted, the brief came with no deadline or even budget, just a simple request: the owners wanted “a piece of art, a product that fascinated them and where it would feel good to live”.

This house, located near Mindelo – a coastal area 14 miles north of Porto – inspires a holiday refuge with a soothing beach-side atmosphere. Pereira admits that “It was very important to meet the owners exhaustively, as well as their tastes and their foibles, routines and pleasures, and present a solution: the SilverWoodHouse. I decided to take the beach to my clients, so that they could feel everyday the proximity of the dunes, sand and worn wood.
