Santa Isabel Houses by Bak Gordon

Two stark concrete houses in Lisbon feature secluded courtyards with overflowing ponds and swimming pools.
Designed by Portuguese architects Bak Gordon, the residences replace industrial sheds in the Santa Isabel district.
Residents enter the single-storey houses through bright yellow doors that interrupt the rough grey concrete facade.
Windows face inwards towards the private courtyards, turning away from overbearing apartment blocks that closely surround the houses.
There 
are many such places in Lisbon – more or less old, deeper or more open to the sky, but always very 
impenetrable.
