WOOD TRAY CEILING | Old Portuguese Stuff


A simple and frugal cloister, of which we already have one view here, its interest lies in the wood tray ceilings at the gallery level. Typical of other cloisters in Portugal (as are the brick pavers in herringbone pattern), the painted boards overlap each other creating an effective and practical solution. Not only is it very architectural, it also allows all kinds of modulations within the grid-like framework, as in the corners.
