House refurbishment, Porto | Eduardo Souto de Moura

Pritzker Prize winning architect Eduardo Souto de Moura redesigned a house in Porto, carefully fusing contemporary architecture with the traditional vernacular of the surrounding area.

The 19th century townhouse is arranged around a pair of secluded courtyards, creating a minimalist retreat that can be let for holiday stays through The Modern House. The house features various furniture pieces by Souto de Moura and fellow Portuguese architect Àlvaro Siza.
