House on Engenheiro Trigo Road
Macao, Macau, China
The design of this eclectic house from the beginning of the 20th century centres on a three-storey tower at the corner of two streets. The tower serves as the main axis of the composition, set at 45 degrees to the other two smaller two-storey sections of the building, which feature a continuous pillared veranda. There is a certain colonial air to the galleries that combines with the romanticism and rugged power of the tower to create an original and exotic ensemble.
The building was recently taken over by the Technology and Software Institute of the United Nations University.
