This single-family residence is located in Ribeira Grande, a municipality on São Miguel island in the Azores, Portugal. Bernardo Rodrigues, a Portuguese architect called this creature Flight Of Birds, which is definitely impressive and has a futuristic feel.
“The micro-climate of this farmland offers frequent wind and showers so the first design strategy was to block those winds with a wall, offer diverse patios and covered courtyards on the ground floor protected from rain and open all living space to the natural green around by using glass walls receded from the exterior. On the upper floor you can find individual private rooms that are enclosed and secluded.”
The roof offers a wonderful view of all of the island’s north shore.
A large red square wall screens the house from the strong winds of the North Atlantic ocean.
