View all 8 Photos

Made by e|348 arquitectura, this newly constructed house resides in in Porto, Portugal. The private home has two stories, a penthouse, and a garage. Visually, these elements are divided into two volumes with bold vertical and horizontal voids. A striking design, the studio has a mostly white exterior that is split by baleen-like blinds. The blinds cover the wrap-around balcony and can be opened for increased airflow and light. Atop the house, steps lead to the green roof, encouraging engagement with the small garden.
