Residential Architecture: Mario Rocha House by Carlos Nuno Lacerda: “..Designed as a large volume, with the entry markedly assumed by a gap between volumes, and enhanced by a sculpture panel that follows the entire entry route, the house shuts down the street contact and opens into the site through large glazed walls. A rigorous metric served as the basis for the house’s design and volumetric conception. The program was conceived according to functional requirements, and adjusted to the needs of the project, ensuring through the study of light, natural ventilation and circulation, a succession of different and adapted spaces with different uses..”  Extensive glazing, natural light, privacy, ventilation; cantilevers, balconies, lovely wood flooring..
