Portuguese House Boasts 100% Cork Exterior


This cork house has a simple, rectangular structure with a pitched roof, and is covered completely in cork blocks. Arquitectos Anonimos were hired to design and build his creative home. The home owner sought a building out of the ordinary, secluded, and low-cost. While unique in design, the cork facade definitely makes the home even more innovative. Built on the hillside, the home is also private from surrounding neighbors in the area. The house has six rooms, with the dining, living and kitchen on the first floor and a lofted group of bedrooms above on the second floor. It also features expansive windows, with great views and sunlight.

Low-cost meets eco-friendly? Going green just makes sense.
