Residential Architecture: Cabrela House by Orgânica Arquitectura: “..Lisbon studio Orgânica Arquitectura have completed a two-storey residence behind the solid stone walls of an otherwise ruined house in Sintra, Portugal..A wall of windows at the rear of Cabrela House overlooks a small courtyard, which is bounded by the retained stone structure..The new steel-framed house has a pitched roof that imitates the profile of both the existing building and the adjoining property next door..A living room, kitchen and work studio can be found on the ground floor, while two bedrooms are located on the storey above..”  Very interesting juxtaposition of old stone walls from a house in ruins and contemporary glass and steel; extensive glazing, natural light..
