The Lima house is a single family house in a plot with 600.00 m2 in Odivelas with a contemporary architecture, a flat roof, divided by a skylight, which defines two volumes. This skylight will allow direct light to the interior and in particular to the stairs that connect the ground floor to the 1st floor. The ground floor is organized with a large living room that allows direct access to the kitchen and the outdoor patio facing the pool. Through the vestibule we can access from the living room to the upper floor, a guest room, a social bathroom and a storage area.
The main façade is a cubist inspiration. The North façade presents a volume with a differentiated treatment from the rest of the house, more abstract and protected, with only one window fixed in black lacquered aluminum frames on the ground floor. The access of the rooms to the balcony is ensured by two hidden glass doors in order to give more privacy to the rooms.
We imagine a linear and minimal space, where everything can coexist in perfect balance. The strict geometry of the room is organized in complete silence and will provide a relaxing and informal atmosphere. The details attract attention in this minimal and perfectly composed space, in a chromatic and subtle environment in which the materials contrast. This is a place of silent perpendiculars, unpredictable softnesses that invite us to rest.
