A new project that respects the building tradition of the Minho River

Who said innovation forgets tradition? The new Sistema Masa project that we present today is a clear example of how innovative features such as ventilated facades can be perfectly part of a design that respects tradition. In this case, the construction of this housing is fully in line with the building tradition of the Minho River.
