The wooden framed living-room extends to the south looking for the sun. A broad skylight in the ceiling unveils the tree crown that appears like a wide parasol. This dematerialization and transparency intend to bring the tree inside the house.Save this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGThe house gets its red color from the tin roof finishing. The roof structure is made of local Cryptomeria wood. Like the Linden, the Cryptomeria is an imported species. The Cryptomeria japonica was massively used in the first half of the 20th century to forest the island and is nowadays an identity sign of the Azorean landscape.Save this picture!SectionSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGProject gallerySee allShow lessMonocle 24’s ‘The Urbanist’ Examines the Typology of the Department StoreArchitecture NewsSol House / Alexander Brenner ArchitectsSelected Projects Share Portugal Quinta da Tília / Pedro Mauricio BorgesSave this projectSaveQuinta da Tília / Pedro Mauricio BorgesSave this picture!© Fernando Guerra | FG+SGHouses•Ponta Delgada, Portugal CopyArchitect In Charge:Pedro Maurício Borges, João André SimõesCollaborators:Paulo Vaz, Diana PintoStructure:José Maria Cymbron, Rodrigo CymbronFacilities:António Manuel Brandão da LuzAir Conditioning:Francisco Laia GonçalvesGeneral Constructor:ARCO mais – Arquitectura e ConstruçãoCity:Ponta DelgadaCountry:PortugalMore SpecsLess SpecsSave this picture!Floor PlanRecommended ProductsDoorspanoramah!®ah!
