PERGOLA PORCH | Old Portuguese Stuff







The delights of traditional architecture designed purposely to look vernacular. Raul Lino is the master at this game; his houses could have never grown organically over time or been built by an unlearned master-builder. The ensemble is consistently designed throughout, using vernacular details as any American or British architect in the early 20th c. – as a means for Invention within Tradition.

This open porch, covered with a pergola, is such an example. All the elements, rails, paving, pergola, columns, door and window surrounds, come from an extensive catalogue of parts and styles, and are here combined to create an ensemble who is coherent, traditional and naturally “of its own time”, without ever aiming for it.
