House on the flight of birds by Bernardo Rodrigues
Amazing architecture project by Bernardo Rodrigues.
“Portuguese studio Bernardo Rodrigues Arquitecto has completed ‘house on the flight of birds’, a single family home on St. Michael Island in the Azores, Portugal. Informed by the landscape and the prevalent high winds and rain, the design looks to establish a strategy that allows the family to remain connected and exposed to the outdoors regardless of the conditions.
A series of stacked and intersecting volumes are linked by a dominant contoured form, which appears to cut directly through the home. Developing a collection of variously sized sheltered terraces and an undulating roof top patio, the contrasting expression along with a dominant red wall, both defines the overall aesthetic and the organization of space.”Architecture Posted on June 16, 2011
