Introducing BD Houses – a unique set of three twin-houses located in
This project is a perfect blend of traditional and contemporary design styles, providing an innovative and modern look to the traditional Portuguese architecture. The houses are designed in a way to ensure the privacy of the outdoor spaces and connect to the landscape harmoniously. The use of slabs creates a relationship between the street and the houses, minimizing the impact on the surroundings.
Sintra, known for its outstanding natural beauty and rich cultural heritage, is the perfect location for these exquisite BD Houses.
About BD Houses
In a different approach to the typical set of twin dwellings, the proposal presents three isolated houses that favor the connection with the private exterior spaces, in an intention of privacy that allows to enjoy the outdoors comfortably.
The proposals intend to depict the archetype of traditional Portuguese architecture with a contemporary approach in the way the elevations are explored. This approach is notorious in the design of a slab that makes it possible to create a relationship between the scale of the street and the scale of the houses, mitigating the impact on the surroundings.
This gesture allows the houses to rise as a part of the landscape and not as a dissonant element, forming part of a whole.
