From the architect. The site is ncluded in Estate of Arrifóias, Odemira, Alentejo, where nature and topography have very specific features. The client seeks a solution that favors housing asset values and landscaped site.

Respecting the site in its entirety, the project is total involvement with the natural surroundings. Was privileged contemplation of the landscape, adapting the volumetry of the house to the natural topography. The extremely careful two volumes have been developed in "L" shape.

The arrangement shown, maximizes the southern sun exposure, differing in subtle, non-blocking visual, public and private areas. On the whole, the project was undertaken without sacrificing the natural elements and panoramic tiny cuts between site characteristics and human intervention.
