Pousadas Santa Maria do Bruno

Yoshiharu Tsukamoto Lab. (Tokyo Institute of Technology)

A window in the corridor of an old monastery renovated as a hotel, in Bouro, Braga. It was designed by Souto de Moura. The slender steel sash of the single casement window contrasts with the thickness of the huge stone wall. The window overlooks a beautiful hill, and in the evening, the setting sun penetrates deep into the corridor.
