A different design by AZO Sequeira

Slatted wooden screens fold open to reveal walls of windows at the front and back of this concrete house in Porto by AZO Sequeira Arquitectos Associados.  Named House in Bonfim, the property provides a home for a family in the east of the Portuguese city. Braga-based AZO Sequeira designed the building to replace an outdated structure from the 1970s.

The master bedroom sits at the rear of the second storey. It features a private living space with a projecting window, as well as a balcony that spans the width of the building.

The rich colour of the wood offers a stark contrast to the pale grey tones of the concrete side walls, but echoes the hue of the surrounding rooftops.

Both the front and rear facades are almost entirely glazed, allowing light to flood the interior. To maintain privacy, the most overlooked areas of glazing are covered with timber slats. These integrate a series of bi-folding screens, allowing residents to expose their living spaces at will.

The house contains three storeys, as well as a basement floor. The ground floor is largely open plan, containing a series of spaces suited to entertaining guests. A staircase sits at the centre of the plan, with a kitchen on one side, a dining room on the other, and a large living area behind. With the exception of concrete floors, almost every surface is white, including the kitchen and built-in storage.

“Our project team developed a concrete building based on the existing basis of volumes,” said the studio. “The main windows are coated with a wood skin based in surrounding colours and materials.”
