Extraordinary modern home in Portugal
The Mario Rocha house is situated in Valongo, Portugal and has been designed by architect Carlos Nuno Lacerda. The residence has been designed as a large volume, with the entry markedly assumed by a gap between volumes, and enhanced by a sculpture panel that follows the entire entry route the house shuts down the street contact and opens into the site through large glazed walls. A rigorous metric served as the basis for the house’s design and volumetric conception. The program was conceived according to functional requirements, and adjusted to the needs of the project, ensuring through the study of light, natural ventilation and circulation, a succession of different and adapted spaces with different uses.
