Collection of modern, minimalist, and eco friendly architectural design for your home inspiration
Located in Santa Maria da Feira, Portugal, duo architects Ana de Bastos and Filipe Xavier Oliveira has completed a minimalist home design project which was originated from the transformation of a place that it maintains a rural identity that derives from the surrounding environment.
The minimalist house is comprised of two volumes. The first volume presents an independent access entrance to an office, allowing the work at home without invading a place that was made to be intimate. It also contains the kitchen on the lower floor and the parent’s suite on the upper floor. In the upper floor there are the children’s bedrooms. Both volumes are connected by a glass bridge thus allowing moments of space decompression and visual see-through with a guaranty of privacy.
The entrance was a central theme of the project that was raised though an inner-street that connects all the land with a clear notion of course. In the first moment of the entrance in the land, a tunnel surrounds us and a wall of granite lead us to the house entrance, which is the (re)interpretation of the threshing-floor house that is in the same place and it works as a hinge moment between distinct quotes and land’s orientations.
It was sought that this place of transition was both fluid and domestic. Since the entrance to a house is also made through a car way, the garage had an equally carefully planning where the natural light had to exist, culminating in the access stairway to the lobby.
The access to the limit of the land by a ramp is made by a pergola that gives rhythm to the course and culminates in the leftover functions that equip the second garden to the high quote.

With tons of blueprints (over 16,000!) for different furniture designs and outdoor woodwork projectsyou can have a great insight into how to build different things with wood. In it, they tell you about wood, how to design projects, the detailed photographs, patterns, blueprints, materials list and step by step instructions on how to put build them.
The second part shows you the different tools and how to use them, and a complete guide to woodwork carpentry. And the color photographs and drawings are beautiful and show a lot of detail.
