In Portugal, A Military Base Becomes A Conservation Center | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

"A Portuguese military site, reimagined as a coastal conservation center, has taken top honors in this year’s Architecture for Humanity Open Architecture Challenge. The theme of the competition,  called on architects and designers worldwide to identify retired military installations in their own backyard, and to collaborate with local stakeholders to reclaim these spaces for the greater social, economic, and environmental good."

Surprising Architecture Displayed By Coastal Residence

Surprising Architecture Displayed By Coastal Residence | The Architecture of the City | Scoop.it

Constructed in Lagos, Portugal, this fascinating residential home overlooking the Atlantic Ocean will definitely become one of your favorites once you see all the details. Designed by Portuguese architectural studio Mario Martins, the coastal home was created with a few guidelines in mind, as to make the most of its location and offer the inhabitants a comfortable, elegant crib. Named Colunata House, the residence was built using locally resourced materials and its architecture was designed according to solar orientation, but without losing the panoramic views. A subtle transition between the interiors and exteriors was created, respecting the surroundings and carefully placing comfort and views on a pedestal.
