House in Brito, Braga and Guimarães by Topos – Atelier de Arquitectura. Lda

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

Article source: Jean Pierre Porcher, Margarida Oliveira, Albino Freitas

Located between the city of Braga and Guimarães, the house finds itself in a large sloping terrain, part of a valley still partly preserved from residential areas. To the west, a line of water irrigates a thicket of «tiers pay-sage» and sustains on the other side a lush forest of eucalyptus trees. On this side, the cultivated fields, the ruins of a farm frozen in time, waiting to be rehabilitated. Foreseen was the unfolding of quiet lives in harmony with nature.
