For those who love architecture, here we have the perfect post, directly from Portugal!
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.”
