Portuguese designer Sandra Micaela Casinha wanted to design a house that would reflect the closeness to nature and the feminine energies of its inhabitants through its organic forms.
The house, located in the Gondomar district in the east of Porto, was designed by Sandra Micaela Casinha for a family of young girls, and its organic forms are inspired by flowers. Sandra has also sought to make the building as homogeneous as possible in terms of materials, with white walls, wooden details, and large glass windows.
The most striking feature of the building is clearly the huge white walls that wrap around the interior like petals. This is particularly noticeable at dusk or dawn when the yellow lights that filter out from the inside look like the stamens of a flower.
Nor are the interior spaces of the house ordinary, following the same streamlined forms that characterize the façade. Although the exterior of the house might suggest that the interiors are dominated by neutral colors, which is partly true, the pink tiles in the bathroom add a surprising twist.
