House in Porches Located in the old village of Porches, the lot is delimited by two uneven streets and has a markedly asymmetrical shape. Adapting to its small size and irregularity, the plant has developed longitudinally, giving rise to a 3 story house with a contemporary design, also planned to harmonize with the traditionally rural environment and local architecture. The northwest façade, clean and rectilinear, with few openings, contrasts with its opposite, ragged by large windows, fully open to the countryside and recessed on the second floor allowing the enjoyment of a large terrace with sea view. Designed from the inside to the outside of the house, the shale wall has a powerful visual effect, intersecting the two upper floors and creating a clear separation between the private and the social area.
