Paramos House Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes

Portuguese architecture studio Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes has designed the three story, contemporary Paramos House in Espinho, Portugal. Paramos House by Atelier Nuno Lacerda Lopes: "Paramos House has a striking contemporary design that goes above and beyond the standardized and canonical models of today’s usual housing solutions. Volumetrically, this solution presents the residential home as a game. It highlights an articulation of volumes, with variations between opaque and glassed surfaces, adjusting the programmatic content in a careful volumetric composition. The circulation zone, the element of spatial unity in the house, is the main theme in the volumetric conception. It marks a separation of the house into two volumes, by his retreat in relation to the facades. This illusion of a gap between volumes highlights the design and composition of the elevations."
