Architect Raulino Silva is known for his extremely delicate designs with the greatest touch of minimalism and did not disappoint in The Aldoar House again. The building was built for a family in 2020 on a narrow plot of land in the Portuguese part of Foz do Douro in Porto, which is known for its free atmosphere. The house consists of three superimposed volumes, one of which is located underground with a garage and function rooms. The modern residence offers views of the Portuguese streets or the plot with swimming pool from all terraces. The first floor is divided into two parts: the shiny white kitchen faces the plot and the living room in earthy tones overlooks the terrace with pool. Massive lamella stairs are the central connection of all floors.
„On the top floor, we have three suites, the two smaller ones to the East and the main suite with a dressing room for the West.“
„On the rear floor, we have another suite and the office in the rear area open to a large terrace.“
The architect achieved the timelessness of the house with modern windows in conjunction with a pure white facade which reflects the simplicity of the interior. Earthy colors mixed with a delicate wooden surface or white marble, soft materials and occasional decorations that have a well-defined place – this is the real minimalism by Raulino Silva stored in this house.
