Name: Casa Do Conto • Year: 2012 • Architect: Fernando Guerra (FG + SG) • Location: Porto, Portugal • Description: "The House highlights Oporto’s XIX century domestic architecture, solemn and vertical, carved by the scars of a time that mediates its decline and rebirth, the memory of the past and the desire for the future, the granite stone of the old facades and the new concrete of staircases and ceilings." — "Casa Do Conto", Europa Concorsi (Retrieved: 27 April, 2014)
