House in Foz do Douro II in Porto, Portugal by José Carlos Cruz Arquitecto

The house is placed on a hill between two streets and two houses. Its footprint was dictated by the location of the previous building. The transparency and natural light claim itself as a fundamental element in the project, allowing to see the river through the plat-an treetops.

Transparency also gives us an illusion of continuity between the interior composition and the external context. Plasticity and sober decoration, minimalist yet rich, are expressed in the materials, in the black and white colour games, in the design objects and works of art. The exposure facing the river contrasts with the intimate way the house relates with the street.
