From the architect. This house is located on Aroeira’s estate, near the main lake of the Golf Course. The placing and the volume’s disposition of the “Lake House” result from the conjugation between the distance to the adjacent lots and the existing grove. It was wanted a house which could comprise the autonomy of different spaces – social/private, day/night – with the creation of a big terrace near the pool.

Taking part of the lot’s location conditions, whether in terms of topographic settings as from its limits, the house position emphasizes the creation of dominant visual alignments in the direction of the surrounding lake area. In fact, the service areas protect, strategically, the social spaces, occupying the less favourable spots of the placement.

A distribution space, by the entrance, articulates the relation between the private areas and the social space of the house, underlining the interaction between the land’s configuration and the definition of the dwelling’s programmatic scheme.

Betting still on the gradual transition between the interior and the exterior, the terrace assumes itself as a natural extension of the living area, promoting the constant dialogue with its surroundings and the flexibility in the appropriation of the different proposed spaces. On the other hand, the choice of the materials, proper from the region, emphasises once more the search for the integration of the house in the specific context of Aroeira’s urbanization.
