Happiness Together

posted by on April 8 at 12:23 PM

She and the house…
carreco07.jpg…are in Portugal. The architects are Nuno Grande and Pedro Gadanho. The home’s defining feature is the suspended “baclony-terrace.” The complication of the primary volume is the next significant feature. At the front of house, a large surface with a small round window looms over the glass door.

As for the woman. She is not old. She has a ponytail. She wears a black skirt. Her hand is on the wall. And her mind is elsewhere.

Thanks for coming up with the attribution, Chaz. I still don't get it, though.

Is it dark and stinky up there, Charlie? Eedyot.

I love this home. The only concern for me would be the large hole on the balcony-terrace. I like to drink wine while I stand on my terrace to contemplate, and I know I'd fall.

Based on the photo, I like it. I'm not always a fan of this general style of home, but this one really works I think.

Is that "baclony" a sly reference to the best bacon post earlier today?

Shit, I liked bacon already but I'm liking it more and more now.
