SilverWood House is a residence located in Mindelo, in northern Portugal, which has been transformed and renovated recently by the architect Ernesto Pereira (3r Ernesto Pereira). The house is an eloquent example of how amazing can be the transformation of a traditional house into a modern and very attractive house.

The customers have known from the first moment what they wanted and they made available a generous budget for the architect to fulfill their desire to live in a “piece of art” house. In the first phase, the architect has tried to find out the customers’ tastes, habits and daily routine also their pleasures and their eccentricities in order to think at a compatible project.

The proposed theme was the coast, the architect aiming to bring the residents closer to the beach, dunes, sand and water. All these elements encourage a relaxing, comfortable and free of inhibitions atmosphere.

On the exterior the bright white makes a good team with the wood of the facades, stimulating instantaneously the imagination towards the bright beaches cooled by the breeze of the sea. Fully used both out and in, the wood proves once again to be the versatile material that can change the image of a house. The combination between the reassuring white and raw wood dominates also the interior decorated minimalist, transforming the SilverWood house into a warm and welcoming home.
