Casa do Monte is a minimalist residence located in Lisboa, Portugal, designed by Leopold Banchini Architects in collaboration with Daniel Zamarbide of BUREAU. The home is characterized by a monolith stone centerpiece that extends the entire height of the home, and serves as a partition from the rest of the space. The privacy created by the stone allowed the architects to reserve certain spaces like the bathroom within the enclosure. In addition, the material is both hygienic and easy to clean, furthering its function while also serving as an aesthetic statement.
