A Wooden Wall Protects the Privacy of This Portuguese Home

From afar, this home's wooden wall appears to just be an aesthetically pleasing feature, but is actually functional.

The home was titled 'House in Bonfim' and was designed by 'AZO Sequeira Arquitectos Associados.' Its sleek cubic shape is quite standard for most modern homes, but the wooden walls that cover the front and back of the home add a rustic element to it. The walls function as protective screens and have windows, while the slats themselves can be opened and closed much like window blinds. This not only gives the house a unique look, but protects the privacy of its residents.

This home's slatted screens are both eye-catching and useful, proving that privacy features in the home can be multi-functional.
