AIRES MATEUS – House in Fontinha, 2013



In the hills of Grandola, the house is a balance between a courtyard, a protected core relating to the sky, and an opening to the distance ocean view. The topography is modeled to protect the house from the access road and to open the spaces to a view of the ocean. The perimeter delineates the interior rooms and the transitional spaces. Vertical volumetric spaces are occupied by elements that define functions and atmospheres.
