The Mario Rocha House is a dream home built in the midst of Valongo, a city in the District of Porto, Portugal. This two story house by Carlos Nuno Lacerda Architects is built to provide natural lighting, ventilation, as well as a spacious multi-functional space with a fitness room, pool and spa.
The house’s continuity and unity guarantee was a major factor in the choice of materials to be used. The wooden structure gives the necessary shade and, at the same time, provides a sort of rhythm for the entire façade. It is indeed a modern home with utmost rarity in the neighborhood of Valongo City.
