Casa Boavista, a newly built home in Porto, Portugal, has a cleverly altered design that allows for more desirable features. The home is apportioned into three vertical tiers, and each of those levels has its own separate skylight.
Skylights are attractive features for homes, as they allow in plenty of natural light (an abundant resource in the sunny city of Porto.) Typically, homes only have a single skylight, simply because the roof covers the entirety of the house. By segmenting the Casa Boavista to effectively have three separate roofs, Pablo Rebelo and Pedro Pita, the architects behind the home, were able to manipulate the design to add value and ample sunlight to the darkest parts of the home.
