From the architect. Oriented to the west and with a large panoramic view to the city, House in Guimarães is an exploration and incorporation of natural light. The house is situated on a site with a large variance in grade, roughly 10 meters, therefore the architects chose to spread the 650 square meter home over three floors.

The ground floor is the largest area of the home.  There is a natural fluidity between interior and exterior spaces, as the living and dining rooms, kitchen, and pool deck all are housed on this level.  Moveable sliding doors easily merge all of these uses together or separate them accordingly.

The middle floor houses the sleep area, with multiple bedrooms and a sculpture courtyard.

The main access to the house is through the second floor.   Parking, an office, and an outdoor balcony that provides the best view of the whole home.
