House in Foz Do Duro II by Jose Carlos Cruz

By • Oct 26, 2012

Portuguese architect, Jose Carlos Cruz, designed the House in Foz Do Duro II project in Porto, Portugal.

House in Foz Do Duro II by Jose Carlos Cruz:

“The house is placed on a hill between two streets and two houses. Its footprint was dictated by the location of the old building. The transparency and natural light claim itself as a fundamental element in the project, allowing to see the river through the platan treetops. Transparency also gives us an illusion of continuity between the interior composition and the external context. Plasticity and sober decoration, minimalist yet rich, are expressed in the materials, in the black and white colour games, in the design objects and works of art. The exposure facing the river contrasts with the intimate way the house relates with the street.”
