Porto Doors and Windows

Posted by Nads on October 11, 2012

I did a post awhile back on dressing up your doors in my Leslieville neighborhood.  Shortly afterwards, I spent some time in Portugal and one of the first things I noticed was the doorways that surrounded me.  Some Baroque, mid-century, some modern and some antique, I was struck by how different all the doorways were at every turn.

It seemed like everywhere I looked there was a different expression of architecture, history and modern design.  I took some snaps and thought I would share.  The doorways here in Porto were such an expression of history and modern design, all unique and expressive their own way.  There is such use of materials here – ironwork, art deco design, ceramics, mixed with modern nuances and grafitti.  So wildly different and interesting.  Check some of them out:
