This project is about a residential house of 600 square meters in Odivelas, composed of two floors and an outdoor living space, perfect for sunbathing and socializing next to an impressive swimming pool. Featuring contemporary architecture and a flat cover, it is divided into two parts, each one separated by a fantastic skylight that allows direct light input to the interior, especially to the stairs connecting both floors. The main facade, with a cubist image, exalts the large windows in all rooms, while the north facade introduces more of an abstract concept.
The organization on the first floor is crucial for the whole environment. This starts with a large living room that allows the access to the kitchen on the right side, and to the outdoors too, where we can find the pool. Through the foyer that connects the living room to the stairs are located a guest room, a public bathroom and a storage room. The top floor has three bedrooms, one suite and a social bathroom.
We imagined a straight and minimalist space where everything is perfectly balanced. The geometric lines all over the rooms create a quiet environment, providing a relaxed place to live
The simple details stand out in this little but fantastically well composed space. With all these aspects the house attracts attention to the minimal space and subtle environment in which the materials contrast. This is a place of silent perpendiculars and unpredictable softness that invites us to rest.
