This stunning black and white building is actually covered in white and dark blue tiles in a lagged chess pattern to create a fantastic optical effect and unending interest. Located in Vila Verde, Braga, Portugal, the building was constructed and conceived by the Minho Enterprises Institute.

The black and white building boasts panoramic views from the interior. Just over 2,000 square meters, this two story building is divided into a loose 'L' shape. It is both stunning in its execution and minimal in its design.
