From the architect. The new eco-resort of Parque de Pedras Salgadas, Portugal, consists of a set of seven small houses in perfect harmony with the surrounding outstanding nature.

Designed in a modular prefabrication system but flexible to adapt to the specific places within the park, these houses result in several different combinations of the same three modules (entrance/bathing - living - sleeping) creating different morphologies and different dialogues with the surrounding nature, wisely occupying the empty spaces between the trunksof large trees and, at the same time, allowing each home to be unique, special and worth visiting.

The pitched roofs that caracterize the intervention redefine the contours of the park boundary and result, within the housesin comfortable but dynamic spaces.

The vain corner contradicts the structural logic of the house but creates the ilusion that the park is inside the house framing living nature pictures.

The outer coating in slate tile reffers to the local contruction traditions and the slatted wood used when there is a balcony creates the perfect resting spaces.

I'm so proud and happy..!I'm Portuguese and, for me, is a very grateful new. We have a lot of unknown talent, believe me.
Congratulations!

More than deserved!!!! :-)

It destroyed an entire heritage to exchange for a much lower category building. :(

the way to achieve this award was shameful

Não percebo o teu problema... Destruiu um património!? vejo precisamente o contrario! Havias de ficar feliz pela arquitectura portuguesa ser tão valorizada... e a muito esforço.
