House in Alentejo Coast | Portugal | 2015
[Aires Mateus]

Among the pine trees, a stone plateau is drawn to a scale that can no longer be understood as a courtyard. The space embraces a wide area of trees.

The house and its services define a recognizable solid border. The interior of this boundary is inhabitable and characterized by light.

The more open side of the house creates a water tank through the connection of geometries. A space that embraces its context is created through this closed extension. Text description by the architects.
