Text description provided by the architects. These small vacation villas, were designed for an "anonymous" plot along the beach of Manta Rota on the Algarve Coast. Despite belonging to different clients, the two houses were designed together, becoming a one volume unit house, consisting of two twin sections.

Floor Plan

In each of the sections, the ground floor is occupied by a single space which makes up the lounge and kitchen areas, facing to the east and west respectively. These spaces extend to the outside covered porches, expanding the available floor space, and protecting the interior from direct sunlight.

The first floor is reserved for the private areas, with three bedrooms with the same dimensions, two of them facing east.

The architectural language of the set is based on the expressiveness of its own elements, dosed by the criteria of simplicity.
