Wood Slats On The Exterior Of This House Hide Some Windows And Doors

A modern home with a black and wood slat exterior.

Hous3 Arquitectura has designed a home in Santo Tirso, Portugal, that draws inspiration from a Portuguese house and its gable roof.

One of the key features of this house is its wood slat exterior, which allows windows and doors to be hidden in plain sight.

Having some of the windows and doors integrated into the exterior allows for the creation of a seamless appearance for the entire house facade.

Some of the wood slats are designed in a way that they can be opened, revealing the doors and windows.

The wood slats can also be seen from the interior of the home, providing shade and privacy for the occupants, and at the same time, casting shadows on the white walls and wood floors.

Shadows from the wood slat exterior filter through to the interior.

Let’s take a look at the rest of the house…

Not only does the house feature wood slats, but it also has black tiles that cover the sides and the gabled roof. In the middle of the house, there’s a void that allows the home to open to outdoor spaces,

Lined with white walls and glass doors, the void opens the living room and kitchen to a patio, which has views of the yard, an outdoor dining area, and a swimming pool.
