Ten Modern Buildings That Make Good Neighbors
January 10, 2013
House In Travessa Do Patrocínio
Designed by Luís Rebelo de Andrade, Tiago Rebelo de Andrade, Manuel Cachão Tojal,
Why it’s a good neighbor: The most-striking aspect of this house is its thick-planted green facade, which, yes, may interrupt the townhome fabric of the area but that doesn’t do so without good reason. The lush facade, what the architects describe as the “face of a garden,” functions as a “mini lung” blowing fresh air into a neighborhood with few trees or vegetation. And that’s got to count for something, right?
