This is not really an MCM and maybe should be listed elsewhere, but it is an awesome home built on the ruins of a centenary granite block home (and available as vacation rental):

Very nice Miguel!!!

Always great to see unknown places outside of North America.

And a vacation rental to boot! Will have to remember this one.

Eduardo Souto de Moura is one of my favorite living architects. Together with Ã￾lvaro Siza, Souto de Moura embodies the principles of Architectural School of Oporto with a very minimal/rational approach to modern architecture based on work of the great mid-century modernists such as Mies, Phillip Johnson, etc.

Below is another great work of Souto de Moura, the Casa das Artes (House of the Arts), build n the eighties in the grounds of a neo-classical turn-of-the-century home (a short walk from my parents' home)

More info about the building can be found here: http://www.mimoa.eu/projects/Portugal/P ... as%20Artes

And all the great details of this building can be seen in the flickr photoset:

Edifício do Burgo, Oporto, 2006

One of Souto de Moura's more recent works is the Burgo Tower a complex of two buildings, a 3-floor horizontal module and a 18 floor vertical module., Notice the shades of Mies skyscraper design on the skins of the builidings:
