This is a house that thrives on an unexpected dialogue between the modern and the traditional. Its volume, strong and modern from the outside, hides an unpretentious interior, rich in light and shade, very inspired by the traditional Portuguese simplicity. Developing a project for a house uniquely for vacations has challenged us to create a spatial and programmatic concept that reflects it. We aimed to highlight the qualities of a vacation home and we focused on an atmosphere that revived the morphology of traditional Portuguese houses. The result is a modern house for a country experience.
