Contemporary Residence with Cumarú Wood Coating in Portugal 1

Aroeira III House (2011) is a contemporary residence designed by ColectivAequitectura in Portugal, near a golf course (area of Aroeira). A fine example of contemporary architecture, the residence is characterised by strong horizontality and openness. It comprises three intersecting volumes, all distributed on two levels. Main floor was highlighted through a Cumarú wood coating which, by the way, creates both, thermal and acoustic comfort. The contrast between the verticality of the existing trees and the horizontal display of house layers creates a strong visual effect. Back to the layers: the ground level of the house and a coating of Cumarú wood outlining the top floor.
