Project Description

(“Text as submitted by architect”)

In the hills of Grândola, the house is a balance between a courtyard, a protected core relating to the sky, and an opening to the distant ocean view.

The topography is modeled to protect the house from the 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.
