Concrete House with a Simple and Elegant Interior

This house, occupying a space of roughly 360 square meteres, appears strong and rough on the exterior. However, its interior surprises us kindly with a set of wide, bright, and warming spaces. It is located in Sanfins, Portugal, and the design was made in 2017 by the architectural firm Pedro Henrique.

Located in a rural context, but close to the historical and central center of Santa Maria da Feira, the project is developed from the recovery of an existing stone house and the construction of a new concrete body. These two structures are interconnected by a wooden structure and wide openings, merging as one the interior and exterior.

The entrance of the house is the central and intermediate point of distribution that relates the two floors. The upper floor, dedicated to the private spaces of the home, we can see two areas of differing make: the first space, of concrete walls, consists of the children’s bedrooms and bathrooms, whilst the second space, of stone walls, consists of the parents’ bedrooms. Meanwhile, the lower floor is destined to all the social areas and bathrooms.

Inside, we are surprised by the materials with which it has been designed, we can observe a  simple white color on the walls and floors, accompanied by a wooden ceiling. This creates a unique contrast full of elegance and warmth where simplicity is valued.
