Risco Singular Arquitectura: White concrete with vertical stripes surrounds a building in the interior of Portugal.
It is located on the south bank of the River Cávado, in Barcelinhos, offering a wide green landscape immortalized by the Palace of the Dukes of Bragança and the Medieval Tower. The land is presented in two elevated platforms, supported by high granite walls and hawks from which small flowers emerge, it is here that RiscoWhite is located.
In the act of transmitting its natural condition, the Architecture and accepting the site and its historical legacy, an attempt to transmit the existing language – a small housing unit – without speculation or ambition. RiscoWhite appears to us as a striped white concrete block, torn silently, that extends along the lowest platform where the volumes gravitate in the serenity of the place, in a game of two heights that enjoys its immense landscape.
