A Modern Portuguese Farmhouse Features Four Separate Wings

By Dwell @dwell
Portuguese farmhouse with four distinct structures

Four distinct structures make up the house. Their design echoes the shape of an older, gabled-roof building already on site. “We considered the neighboring construction quite interesting in terms of scale and layout,” de Carvalho says. “Due to the proximity, we felt the necessity to integrate it in the design.”

Conflicting desires are a hallmark of many architectural projects, and it’s often what makes them interesting. PROD Architecture + Design’s clients wanted a farmhouse in Penafiel, Portugal, that blended in with the region’s more traditional homes but also had modern, floor-to-ceiling windows that responded to the environment. “The balance between these two conditions was the problem we proposed to solve,” architect Paulo Lago de Carvalho explains. “That's when fragmentation became clear as the right strategy.”
