Green Metal Mesh: The Concept Behind This Porto Home ♦ The architecture studio Ottotto has remodelled the interior of this home in Porto, using green metal mesh to encase its original stone walls. Join Secrets From Portugal and discover the amazing result!
When Ottotto removed the house’s old plaster they discovered the original stone walls. The studio decided to keep them exposed, covering them with green metal mesh to serve as a “memory” of the former building.
Designed for an imaginary client, the concept for the project drew on the work of American artist Gordon Matta-Clark. Ottotto carved spaces out of the original interior to create skylights and mezzanines.
A new structure of green steel, along with green floors and metal mesh, gave the remodelled home its name – GreenHouse.
