Here at The Culture Curators, we’re big fans of contemporary design. From art to architecture, we find a contemporary design to be inspiring, fascinating, and compelling. Today we get a look at a unique structure that embraces its landscape while looking like a contrasting figure. The Cork Oak House is situated on protected land, brought to life in a grove of cork oak trees.
A board-formed facade was made of unique pieces of pine and is left exposed inside. The home features floor-to-ceiling glazing that brings light to the monolithic dwelling. The modern interior is flooded with natural light, while a minimalist approach adds to its charm. The glazing also provides unrivaled views of the incredible scenery and surroundings. The interior’s black tile floors expand on to outdoor patios, connecting a narrow pool that is immersed in nature.
Take a closer look at this eye-catching contemporary structure in the images and find out more about the Cork Oak House from Hugo Pereira Arquitetos. In the meantime, keep it locked with The Culture Curators for more modern architecture coming very soon.
