Portugal Residential Development
The four secluded villas that make up this development defy structural logic. Anchored to, but cascading down the mountain, the architecture is treated as sculpture in form and space. Glass, concrete and timber together with corralled water combine to create an atmosphere that is serene and contemplative yet suffused with latent dynamism.
Horizontal lines, volumes and spaces are strong themes, glazed panels run entire lengths of structure, elongated cantilevered forms hover in space, timber flooring and ceilings float between panels and water falls into ordered pools below.
