'Fragmentos de Arquitectura' Cut Two Terraces into Corners

An attractive terrace is a big selling point for any residence, and this apartment building by 'Fragmentos de Arquitectura' turns its balconies into the main point of the design. The Campo de Ourique 70 building features two terraces that cut into the edges of the building rather than extending outward, making them look like scientific cross-sections that reveal the interior of the space.

To be sure, the two terraces in Fragmentos de Arquitectura's design don't reflect the appearance of the building's interior. The outermost facade is covered in white concrete cladding, and the terraces give way to wood coverings. However, the interior of the apartment is primarily covered in white tiling, which is the opposite of what one might expect given the cross-section design.
