It is inserted in a set of other masterpieces of modern and contemporary Portuguese architecture, giving it an aesthetic context of singular harmony, supported by the natural surroundings, where it is perfectly integrated.
Everything in this property is unique and different. The assumed contemporary identity is reflected in the permeability of light throughout the day and with various and distinct intensities, in the breadth of the spaces that are defined as 'open' in a continuous dialogue with the gardens that stubbornly 'invite' to enter.Similarly, the smooth transition between the social area and the private area is performed through a smart difference of quotas linked by two ladders which between them define a circuit among the different rooms that are located there.
Exposed, predominantly, to the South allows a control of the interior temperature of high quality and low consumption in the winter as in the summer. Its location, at a lower level than the street, guarantees the protection of the dominant north-west winds, especially during the summer season.
