Material and its Properties
This stone house in Melgaço in northern Portugal is a resurrection of two homes: the first being the site’s original two-story cottage, and the second a nearby, demolished building whose granite stones were transported to create an extension.
stone is greatly valued for its aesthetic appeal, durability, and ease of maintenance.
