Bernardo Rodrigues Arquitecto – House on the Flight of Birds

This wonderful house was created by Portuguese studio Bernardo Rodrigues Arquitecto. Itsf curves and rectilinear volumes create a comfortable and playful living space. House is located on St. Michael island in the Azores, Portugal.

According to the architects, “the microclimate of this farmland offers frequent wind and showers so the first design strategy was to block those winds with a wall, offer diverse patios and covered courtyards on the ground floor protected from rain and open all living space to the natural green around by using glass walls receded from the exterior. On the upper-floor there are the private rooms more enclosed and protected.”(via
