Portugese Concrete House by Studio Carvalho Araújo

Madeline Saxton-Beer - Thursday, January 21, 2016

Looking at this concrete residence by Portugese studio Carvalho Araujo, the piece de resistance is inarguably its rooftop pool which spans the length of the structure and offers expansive views over the nearby Serra d'Arga mountains.  The compact property occupies the footprint of a former ruin on the edge of Viana do Castelo, a coastal village in northern Portugal. The aesthetic of the home is inspired by the domestic water tanks used to supply local houses and is inconspicuous set amidst the rugged landscape.
