Two Houses in Monção, Portugal by João Paulo Loureiro | via

From the architect: A densely wooded land by the bank of the river Minho, a natural frontier between Portugal and Spain, near the village of Monção.

The order to design two houses, on the same ground, for father and son. The son, a well known builder in the area, for whom I was already drawing a small four apartment building in the urban area of Porto, was prepared for the proposal I was presenting for his new house.

So, I’ve decided to join the two houses in only one body. It seemed logical. Briefly: one concrete flagstone (84x16m), prestressed, a modern gesture to lodge two houses (in glass, painted iron in forge and pinewood), supported in modern but traditional granite walls.

A strong gesture looking for the balance with the landscape. At the core, a circle, an ellipsis, a place where a tree can be born, a sculpture, or just the space that was left and conquers the place.
