Admire This Small House With A Monumental Shower Tower By Fala Atelier ♦ Located in Amarante, Portugal, Fala Atelier created a small house by adding a monumental tower to the main volume that fits a small bathroom with a strikingly tall shower. Join Secrets From Portugal and fall in love with this small house.
With a beautiful garden, the residence features a slightly distorted plan and a prominent sloped roof, while the tower’s exuberant pattern of white and pink triangles makes an obvious contrast between the two volumes.
This small residence features one single space: the ground floor incorporates the living area to allow it to exist in relation to the surrounding gardens; while the upper level encloses the bedroom, which fits under the sloped roof and benefits from views of the exterior landscape.
The addition of the tower element has been made visually clear through an exuberant pattern of white and pink triangles. at the same time, the texture of the granite walls is kept and all the doors and window frames are refreshed with color.
‘the tall tower is standing in paradoxical independence, refusing to be serious, making a courageous formal statement,’ notes Fala Atelier. ‘a monumental object for a non-monumental program.’
