Over the past few months, we’ve seen the way some Portuguese architects are playing with solid block structures to contrast modernism against the country’s more desolate areas. Adding to this canon are Montenegro Architects, who have created the Troia MED Residences in Southern Portugal. The edifice houses six individual homes, all surrounded by a series of somewhat abstract block shapes that vary in height and width. Playing off of the natural sunny environment, the facade blocks natural light to create sweeping shadows on the ground. The garden immediate outside is intended as an extension of the natural surrounding environment – yet another play on the internal/external motif. Check out the space above and check out more work by Montenegro Architects here.
